It's a wild, wild World Series

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Cardinals' amazing 2002 ride, alternately agonizing and uplifting, is over, seven wins short of the team's goal.

Kenny Lofton's single off Steve Kline drove in David Bell to give the Giants a 2-1 win over St. Louis on Monday night and a 4-1 win in the National League Championship Series. Matt Morris pitched brilliantly for 8 2/3 innings but took the loss.

Morris was spectacular early and gutty late, but in the end he couldn't hold off one of the National League's best offenses.

"It's tough to end like this," Morris said. "I'm sure I'll take a lot of positives out of it, but it was a tough year for all of us."

The Cardinal clubhouse was the picture of silent, dejected disbelief after an eight-month quest fell short. More >

SAN FRANCISCO -- This city is home to the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. It is home to the world's best sourdough bread and some of the world's luckiest Internet entrepreneurs. And now, it is home to the 2002 World Series.

After erasing a 4 1/2-game deficit in the Wild Card race, a two-games-to-one deficit in the NLDS and an eighth-inning deficit against one of the league's top pitchers, the Giants captured Game 5 of the National League Championship Series, 2-1, Monday night to win the series, 4-1 and advance to their first World Series since 1989.

It will be the first ever All-Wild Card World Series, as the Giants will head to Anaheim for the first two games of the series next weekend against the AL Wild-Card winning Angels.This city is home to the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island.
