PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Juan Uribe hit a tiebreaking homer off Ryan Madson with two outs in the eighth inning as the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Saturday in Game 6 of the National League championship series to reach the World Series for the first time since 2002.

The pitching-rich Giants will host the Texas Rangers in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Slumping Phillies slugger Ryan Howard looked at a called third strike with runners on first and second to end it.

Giants ace Tim Lincecum struggled in the eighth inning, pitching in relief on one day of rest after losing Game 5. Brian Wilson got five outs to finish off the Phillies, who were trying to become the first NL team in 66 years to win three straight pennants.
