Ryan Vogelsong pitched seven innings of one-run ball, Marco Scutaro, Angel Pagan, and Ryan Theriot added timely RBI hits, and the San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series.

The San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 to tie the National League Championship Series at 1-1. Ryan Vogelsong pitched seven innings and allowed only one run and four hits in 106 pitches of work in Game 2.

The Giants started off Game 1 with Angel Pagan homering into deep right field to give San Francisco a 1-0 lead. Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter responded with an RBI double to tie things up at 1-1 in the top of the second.

The Giants took the lead in the bottom of the fourth with four runs. Brandon Belt doubled, Gregor Blanco singled, and then a throwing error by Carpenter allowed Belt to score the go-ahead run. Vogelsong sacrificed Blanco and Crawford into scoring position, Pagan walked, and then Marco Scutaro cleared the bases with a single to left center; the baseball got by Matt Holliday, which allowed Pagan to score. Scutaro would later leave the game with a hip injury.

In the 8th inning, the Giants added insurance. Both Aubrey Huff and Pagan singled to start the inning up, and a Ryan Theriot two RBI single in the 8th inning provided the final margin of victory.
