The St. Louis Cardinals beat up the San Francisco Giants 3-1 in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series to take a 2-1 series lead overall.
St. Louis ended up winning thanks to a Mark Carpenter two run home run that put the Cardinals up 2-1 in the third inning. Shane Robinson added an RBI groundout in the bottom of the 7th inning to chase Matt Cain.
Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse gave up seven hits and the Giants piled up nine hits and five walks on the game, but San Francisco could only get one run across home plate off a Pablo Sandoval RBI groundout. Cain only gave up three runs and six hits but earned the loss.
The New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers didn't play Game 4 on Wednesday due to rain. The Tigers and the Yankees will play the game tomorrow as Detroit has a chance to sweep New York out of the playoffs.
