7th Inning Stretch Radio

The San Francisco Giants are heading to the National League Championship Series for the third time in five years.  Joe Panik scored on a wild pitch by Aaron Barrett in the seventh as the Giants edged the Washington Nationals 3-2 at AT&T Park in Game Four of the National League Division Series.  Panik also drove in a run on a groundout in the second after Gregor Blanco drew a bases-loaded walk to score a run. 

Ryan Vogelsong pitched five-and-two-thirds innings of one-run ball in the start while Hunter Strickland earned the win and Santiago Casilla notched the save.  San Francisco will face the St. Louis Cardinals for a trip to the World Series starting Saturday.  Bryce Harper drove in both runs for Washington, with one coming on a solo homer into McCovey Cove in the seventh.  Gio Gonzalez gave up two unearned runs in four innings while Matt Thornton was charged with the loss.
