Giants 15, Cardinals 0

Associated Press  |  Last updated August 09, 2012
Marco Scutaro hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high seven runs, leading Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants to a 15-0 romp over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. Scutaro had an RBI single in the third, a two-run double in the eighth and then hit his third career slam, connecting in the ninth off Mitchell Boggs. Ahead 2-0, the Giants broke it open with five runs in the sixth. They turned the game into a rout with four runs in the eighth and four more in the ninth. Vogelsong (10-5) gave up three hits in seven innings. He has gone at least six innings in all 21 of his starts, the longest such streak for a Giants pitcher since Bill Swift did it 24 straight times in 1993. Hunter Pence had two hits and scored twice. He began the day batting .143 (4 for 28) in seven games for the Giants since being traded from Philadelphia. Melky Cabrera also had two hits and scored two runs. He leads the majors with 154 hits. Cabrera led off the sixth with a double against Joe Kelly (2-5) and after a walk to Buster Posey, Pence hit an RBI single. Brandon Belt's single loaded the bases and an error by second baseman Tyler Greene on Ryan Theriot's ground ball led to two more runs and Kelly's departure. Brandon Crawford later had an RBI single and Angel Pagan's sacrifice fly made it 7-0. Jon Jay had two singles for the Cardinals in his third straight multihit game. He is 11 for 22 in his last six games. NOTES: Boggs had gone 23 straight appearances without allowing a run. ... Allen Craig, who hit two solo home runs Tuesday, was out of the St. Louis starting lineup with soreness near his ribs. ... Adam Wainwright (9-10) tries to reach the .500 mark when he opposes the Giants' Madison Bumgarner on Thursday afternoon in the series finale. . . . Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal was given a shot in his sore back and sat out. He is considered day-to-day.
