Postseason again

After a truly crappy late July and August, the Giants ended the season 4-0, clobbering the dodgers 7-1.

They've been playing well, beating the dodgers in the series by total score of 19 -4. Here's Chris Haft's top of the story for mlb.com --


SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants set forth upon a familiar path Sunday, claiming the National League's second Wild Card postseason berth by completing a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 7-1 victory at AT&T Park.
San Francisco advanced to Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Mets at New York's Citi Field. The Giants won the Wild Card Game at Pittsburgh in 2014 en route to capturing their third consecutive World Series title in an even-numbered year -- a streak the Giants put themselves in position to sustain as they fended off St. Louis, the only remaining Wild Card contender which began Sunday a game behind San Francisco.
Buster Posey drove in three runs and Denard Span lashed a two-run triple and two singles while scoring three runs to help support left-hander Matt Moore, who improved to 6-2 in his last eight starts by allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six in eight innings.
