Giants stumble into postseason

They are officially in -- now that the Reds beat the Brewers. It would be nice if they could start winning so they can play the play-in game at home, right?

Anyhow, here's the official story on mlb.com --
The Giants are headed back to October.
San Francisco, which has earned World Series championships twice in the past five years, will have a chance to add to its growing trophy collection. The Giants clinched a NL Wild Card spot in the playoffs on Thursday by virtue of the Brewers dropping their early afternoon game to the Reds, 5-3.
The Giants can still climb ahead of Pittsburgh for the top Wild Card slot, which would give it home-field advantage for the NL Wild Card Game on Oct. 1.
The winner of the Wild Card round would play the top division winner on Oct. 3. The Nationals and Dodgers are vying for the top seed in the NL.
