NLCS Game Six: Oswalt at 77 pitches through five

Jeremy Affeldt was pulled for pinch-hitter Mike Fontenot after two perfect innings of game-saving relief. Madison Bumgarner, the team’s game four starter, is on his way in on two days rest.

Roy Oswalt ran into some trouble, letting the leadoff man on for the fourth time in five innings. After striking out Andres Torres on a filthy change-up, Freddy Sanchez singled to center, putting two on for Aubrey Huff. Drawing the count full, Huff then popped up to Polanco in foul territory. Buster Posey worked another long at-bat that ended in a strikeout.

Oswalt is through five innings with four strikeouts and no walks. One of his two runs is earned.

2-2, Complacency leads.
