    I think the first year or two of the NL/ALDS had that format too. I seem to rememebr everybody making a big deal out of it when the Rockies won one of the two home games against the Braves in 1995.

    While the comeback by the Giants to beat the Reds in the NLDS was very remarkable, it's somewhat puzzling that the news media makes such a big deal out of the Giants being the first team to ever overcome a 2-0 deficit in NLDS by sweeping games 3-5 on the road.
    no this is how it used to be in the early years of the playoffs, 2 games at one location, then 3 games at the other location

    the 1982 Brewers, 1984 Padres and possibly other teams lost the first two games in one venue and then won three in another venue, it just so happens they were visitors first then home team second

    the Giants are the first team to win three straight on the road down 0-2
