NLCS 1: Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 1

Rockies      - 013 000 100 - 5  8  0
Diamondbacks - 100 000 000 - 1 9 1
Jeff Francis outdueled Brandon Webb and became (I think) the only Canadian pitcher to start and win a Championship Series game.

A TBS graphic stated that the Red Sox's Reggie Cleveland started and won Game 2 of the 1975 ALCS against Oakland, but he did not get credit for the win in that game.

Kirk McCaskill of the California Angels started Games 2 and 6 of the 1986 ALCS, but did not win either of those games. (Note: BR has Reggie Cleveland as the 4th most similar pitcher to McCaskill.)
