Giants Giants slam their way to historic NLCS berth

Quote:
Buster Posey continued his remarkable comeback story and helped the Giants complete theirs.

Posey's grand slam culminated a six-run outburst in the fifth inning that propelled the Giants to a 6-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in Thursday's decisive Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

After losing the series' first two games, San Francisco won the next three games to reach the NL Championship Series, which will begin Sunday against the winner of the St. Louis-Washington NLDS.

"He's a leader on this club," Bochy said of Posey. "He leads by example. He's a calming influence."
This isn't to say that Bochy and Posey are the only strong presences on this Giants roster with a lot of veteran players and coaches. But it became apparent in this NLDS, with their backs against the wall, that if you wanted an accurate pulse of the team -- almost always even keel -- they were often the tone-setting leaders.
"They're both the same in a lot of ways," starter Matt Cain, the day's winning pitcher, said, "but I think Buster is a little calmer than Bochy is."
