Cardinals vs. Giants: Video Highlights for NLCS Game 2

Ryan RudnanskySenior Writer IOctober 16, 2012

After getting off to a rough start in Game 1 of the NLCS, the San Francisco Giants bounced back against the reigning champion St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night, posting a convincing 7-1 victory at AT&T Park.

It was a great performance all around for the 2010 World Series champions, getting a sterling performance from right-hander Ryan Vogelsong while several Giants contributed on offense.

Second baseman Marco Scutaro, who left the game with a hip injury, went 2-for-3 with two RBI, while leadoff hitter Angel Pagan went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs, including a home run to start off the game against Cardinals right-hander Chris Carpenter.

Vogelsong went seven strong innings, giving up one run. The 35-year-old veteran has been huge for San Francisco in the postseason. He pitched five innings of one-run ball in the Giants' pivotal 2-1 victory in Game 3 against the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS.

Carpenter gave up five runs in four innings, but only two runs were earned, as St. Louis committed two errors in the game.
