June score: Cardinals 15, Giants 1

Not much relief the second game today.  The Giants managed to squeak a run across.  The Cardinals hit no more home runs than they had in the first game, and managed a similar result.  The final: 7-1.  Madison Bumgarner threw 94 pitches, 62 strikes in 6 innings.  He gave up 5 runs on 6 hits and 1 walk.  The Cardinals were very good at grouping their hits together.  Ramon Ramirez, who has mostly been a waste of time since his call up, gave up 2 runs on 3 hits in one inning.  It would have taken a very low scoring game for the Giants to beat Adam Wainwright.  The Giants got 8 hits in his complete game effort, but no Giant walked.  With the exception of Andres Torres' rbi single, the Giants hits were not well grouped.  Chad Gaudin starts tomorrow, then the Giants get a day off before taking on Toronto on Tuesday.

Damn,four runs last week and five this week, even MadBum is not immune to the club's run-disease.

The Cardinals are very good this year hitting with men on base, or with pitchers in the stretch. Think they have a system of stealing signs? Their average with men on vs their average with no men on, probably has the biggest split in the N.L. Matheny, is one smart dude.
