Cardinals vs. Giants, NLCS Game 7 score update: Giants rolling towards World Series, lead 7-0 through six

Matt Cain and the Giants are cruising past the St. Louis Cardinals right now as they lead, 7-0, after six innings.

The Giants scored five and chased Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse out of the game in the third inning as they took a 7-0 lead that still holds after six innings.

Cain has been stellar at holding the Cardinals at bay. After allowing two runners to reach base in the second inning, the Cardinals couldn't muster much offense against Cain. He allowed three hitters to reach base in the third through fifth innings, and it wasn't until the sixth that the Cardinals got two runners on base again. Cain struck out David Freese before he was pulled for Jeremy Affeldt.

Cain has four strikeouts, a walk and given up five hits through 5.2 innings. He was pulled after 102 pitches, 64 of which were strikes.

After the big third inning, the Cardinals' bullpen has settled down for a couple of innings. They struck out the side in the bottom of the fifth, but then the Giants started to threaten again in the sixth. Trevor Rosenthal walked Pablo Sandoval, and Buster Posey followed with a single to center to push Sandoval to second. He induced a Brandon Belt groundout to end the threat.
