NLCS: Beltran, Freese hit 2-run HRs, Cards beat Giants

Posted:

 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Carlos Beltran and David Freese each hit two-run homers and the St. Louis Cardinals held on to beat the San Francisco Giants 6-4 Sunday night in Game 1 of the NL championship series.

   The wild-card Cardinals took an early 6-0 lead and made it stand up. Two days earlier, St. Louis overcame a 6-0 deficit to beat Washington in the deciding Game 5 of the division series.

   After starter Lance Lynn struggled, the St. Louis bullpen delivered with 5 1-3 scoreless innings.

   The Giants dropped to 0-3 at home so far during this postseason, outscored 20-6 at AT&T Park.

   Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is Monday night. Chris Carpenter pitches for the Cardinals against Ryan Vogelsong.
