The Giants won their its record-tying sixth elimination game of the postseason.
The team won it all in 2010 and will now host reigning AL MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander, Triple Crown winning slugger Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 on Wednesday night.
Verlander is tapped to pitch Wednesday's opener at AT&T Park. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that he had not planned any further in advance of Monday night.
