Cardinals vs. Giants score update: Cardinals down to final three outs

The St. Louis Cardinals are down to their last three outs if they are going to avoid a Game 7 in the 2012 NLCS. Ryan Vogelsong left the game after nine strikeouts in seven innings and gave way to Jeremy Affeldt,who retired two batters before Snatiago Casilla got the last out of the eighth inning.

Affeldt struck out one of the batters he faced as St. Louis only had Matt Carpenter reach base in the inning with a one out single. Marc Rzepczynski is pitching in the bottom of the inning for St. Louis as they attempt to prevent the Giants from expanding on their lead as they did late in Game 5.

If there is a need for Game 7 on Monday Kyle Lohse will be the starter for St. Louis while Matt Cain will pitch for San Francisco. It was Cain who officially earned the win in the All-Star Game to give the National League home field advantage in the World Series.
