Tournament Time!

This week we look back at Game 5 of the National League Division Series. We had a reason to celebrate after losing the first two games in SF, then  sweeping the Reds in their home ballpark to move onto the next series.

The winners of each week’s tournament will be published in the 2013 Giants Yearbook.

Results from High Five:

Matt Cain & George Kontos: 19.19%

 Buster Posey & Team: 80.81%
