MLB playoffs: Cardinals rough up Lincecum to take 3-1 series lead in NLCS
NLCS » St. Louis roughs up Giant ace Lincecum to take 3-1 series lead.


< Previous Page


Carpenter doubled off the top of the wall in right-center with one out. He held up until Holliday’s single fell in front of fast-charging center fielder Angel Pagan, but third base coach Jose Oquendo aggressively waved Carpenter home.

The relay from shortstop Brandon Crawford was in time, but it short-hopped catcher Hector Sanchez and Carpenter scored on a headfirst slide to make it 3-1. Molina’s two-out RBI single made it 4-1 and was the knockout blow for Lincecum.

"He gave us all he had out there," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "That was his last inning and he was close to getting out of that inning. He made a great effort on that ball and good throw. We had him at home plate and it’s still 2-1. That’s a big play in the game."

Pence, who called himself "the goat" of Game 3 after stranding seven runners, hit the second-longest home run by an opposing player at 7-year-old Busch Stadium with a 451-foot drive that sailed over the visitor’s bullpen into the bleachers in left-center.

Holliday’s RBI single was the first by a Cardinals starter since Carlos Beltran’s two-run homer in the fourth inning of Game 1. Holliday entered 2 for 12 in the NLCS with no RBIs.

Sandoval hit a two-run homer in the ninth, but the NL West champs are on the brink of elimination.

"We have all the confidence in Barry," Bochy said. "We do need to get the bats going. They’ve been shutting us down."
