SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Left-hander Madison Bumgarner will pitch Game 1 of the NL championship series at home Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Manager Bruce Bochy chose right-hander Ryan Vogelsong as his Game 2 starter for Monday.
The Giants waited out the ending of the wild-card Cardinals' thrilling comeback at Washington on their team plane in Cincinnati before heading home to the Bay Area.
Bumgarner, a 16-game winner this year, lost Game 2 of the NL division series at home to Cincinnati.
NL West champion San Francisco, back in the NLCS for the second time in three years, rallied from a 2-0 division series deficit to beat the Reds on Thursday night, then stayed put in Ohio to learn its opponent.
