Due to the coronavirus outbreak suspending the 2020 MLB season, we’re rewatching the three San Francisco Giants postseason runs, game-by-game, on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday nights at 6 p.m. PT, with a gamethread for each.


Apologies for the spoiler in the photo. If this is your first time following the course of the 2010 San Francisco Giants, I may have ruined some things for you. But I’m guessing it’s not.

Tonight it’s Game 6 of the 2010 National League Championship Series. The series returns to Citizens Bank Park, where the Philadelphia Phillies will try and use some home cooking to force a Game 7.

We’re starting this rewatch at the same time as all of the rewatches: 6 p.m. PT. I’m embedding the video at the bottom of the article, which you can watch in your browser or cast from, or you can find it on YouTube by searching “Giants 2010 NLCS Game 6” and clicking the first link.

Here’s the Phillies lineup — they’re mixing things up a little:

  1. Jimmy Rollins — SS
  2. Placido Polanco — 3B
  3. Chase Utley — 2B
  4. Ryan Howard — 1B
  5. Jayson Werth — RF
  6. Shane Victorino — CF
  7. Raul Ibanez — LF
  8. Carlos Ruiz — C
  9. Roy Oswalt — P

And for the Giants:

  1. Andres Torres — CF
  2. Freddy Sanchez — 2B
  3. Aubrey Huff — 1B
  4. Buster Posey — C
  5. Pat Burrell — LF
  6. Cody Ross — RF
  7. Juan Uribe — 3B
  8. Edgar Renteria — SS
  9. Jonathan Sanchez — P

Bring it home, Giants.
