Lance Lynn is cruising so far and the St. Louis Cardinals are backing him up at the play in Game 1 of the 2012 NLCS. Continuing their hot hitting that saved them Friday night against the Washington Nationals, the Cardinals have already put six runs on the board through three and a half innings in San Francisco.
The Cardinals have tagged Giants' starter Madison Bumgarner for two runs in the second and four runs in the fourth. David Freese did it again in the second with a two-run homer to left center field that traveled 405 feet and scored Yadier Molina.
Peter Kozma and and Daniel Descalso each had RBI hits in the fourth. Delcaso reached on a one-out double and scored on a double by Kozma. Kozma would score on a single from Jon Jay. Carlos Beltran then chased Bumgarner with a two-run homer that chased Bumgarner and made it 6-0.
Lynn has not had any such trouble, as he has not given up a hit and only surrendered a walk to Pablo Sandoval int he first.
