(Newser) – Matt Cain pitched his second clincher of October as the San Francisco Giants won their record-tying sixth elimination game of the postseason, beating the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 of the NL championship series. The Giants return to the World Series two years after winning it all, getting the final out in a downpour. They'll play the Detroit Tigers, who have been waiting for an opponent since sweeping the Yankees. Game One is tomorrow night. Bleacher Report has details of last night's game here.
