For Bochy, NL pride on the line in Fall Classic

DETROIT -- As a career-long National League man, manager Bruce Bochy admitted that he'd like to uphold the Senior Circuit's honor by guiding the Giants to a World Series title.

The NL has won the last two Series, beginning with San Francisco's triumph over Texas in 2010. Before that, AL teams won 12 of the previous 18 Fall Classics.

"I think when you represent the National League, you want to do well," Bochy said. "You want to make the League proud. But also, if you're a National League fan, you're going to do all you can to win. In fact, at the All-Star Game, I mentioned that last year, or two years ago. It's about pride, too, and you always do the best that you can."
