Brian Wilson: 2010 Postseason: 9.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 HR, 4 BB, 12 K, 5 SV, 0.00 ERA

There is no doubt Brian Wilson has been MONEY for the San Francisco Giants in the postseason so far.

The Giants have won 7 postseason games so far and 6 of them have been by 1 run. Wilson has been involved in all six 1-run games (1 win, 5 saves).

And in the NLCS against the Philadelphia Phillies, Wilson had dibs in all 4 Giants victories.

In fact, according to the Elias Sports Bureau --

Wilson posted a win and three saves in this year's NLCS. He is the fourth pitcher to win or save four games in one postseason series since saves became an official major-league statistic (in 1969), joining Dennis Eckersley (1988 ALCS), Mitch Williams (1993 NLCS) and John Wetteland (1996 World Series).

As Tim McCarver would say, "Now that wasn't too shabby".
