St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants: Pitching Previews for NLCS

Despite an electric home crowd, the St. Louis Cardinals stole home-field advantage from the San Francisco Giants with a win in Game 1 on Sunday.  

But Ryan Vogelsong, Marco Scutaro and company really gave the Giants' fans something to cheer about on Monday, silencing the hot Cardinal bats and rallying to a 7-1 victory.  

Scutaro was nailed by Matt Holliday on a first-inning slide into second base and would eventually leave the game, but not before going 2-3 with two RBIs. On the mound, Vogelsong scattered four hits over seven strong innings and only allowed one run on a Chris Carpenter double.

Scutaro's status for the series is uncertain at this point. However, Vogelsong's strong performance did ensure three games in St.Louis and three new, very interesting potential pitching matchups.
