The National League Championship Series is even at one game apiece after San Francisco beat St. Louis 7 to 1 on Monday night.
Ryan Vogelsong was superb giving up just one run in seven innings.
The game was not without controversy. In the first innning the Cardinals Matt Holiday slide hard into second to break up a double play, but in the process almost broke Marco Scutaro's hip.
Scutaro left the game in the later innings but not before he got revenge in the fourth when, with the bases loaded he sngled and Holiday misplayed it into a triple letting three runs score.
