Giants Blast Cardinals In St. Louis

What can you say about the San Francisco Giants? Their leading a division that was just about promised to the L.A. Dodgers. They stick with a closer who really is not a closer and it shows. Their Big Bat has been out with a hamstring injury.  They acquire some good, not great, players who've been adjusting to their new team. 

All that said and the bottom line is they are winning games.  Tonight was new Giant Marco Scutaro's game to come alive and show his stuff.  Scutaro had a two run double, an RBI single and a grand slam home run for a total of seven runs batted in.  The boys are starting to show that playoff run fever. 

Ryan Voglesong pitched seven strong innings with Kontos and Jo Mijares closing out an inning each to preserve the shutout.  The game was nationally televised!

Final Score
Giants 15
Cardinals 0

Final Score
A's 9
Angels 8
