SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Madison Bumgarner has been chosen MVP of the NL Championship Series after his latest display of postseason poise for the San Francisco Giants.

Bumgarner tossed eight solid innings Thursday night in Game 5 and took home MVP honors after the Giants rallied for a 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Travis Ishikawa’s three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth.

The big left-hander also pitched shutout ball in a Game 1 win at St. Louis, getting the Giants off to a fast start in a best-of-seven series they won 4-1. Now, they’re headed to the World Series for the third time in five years, looking to add to the championships they captured in 2010 and 2012.

Bumgarner and the Giants will open the Fall Classic in Kansas City on Tuesday night.
