New, 90 comments

The San Francisco Giants took Game 1 last night in St. Louis, beating the Cardinals 3-0, now they try to win another in Busch Stadium with Jake Peavy on the mound against Lance Lynn in Game 2 of the NLCS. Game Time: 8:00 PM EDT.

San Francisco Giants' starter Madison Bumgarner held the St. Louis Cardinals off the board for 7 ⅔ innings last night in Busch Stadium as the visiting Giants scored three runs early and held on for a 3-0 win in Game 1 of the NLCS. Tonight, the Giants send Jake Peavy to the mound in the Cards' home to take on Lance Lynn in the second game of the best-of-seven series. Game time: 8:00 PM from St. Louis on FOXSports1.

Can the Giants take a 2-0 lead? Can the Cardinals even it up? Can both teams lose? Sorry, still not over the NLDS.

Baseball continues tonight in St. Louis.

Here are the lineups...
