Cardinals vs. Giants 2012 NLCS Game 1: St. Louis leads 6-4 through six

After falling behind 6-0 at home the San Francisco Giants have come storming back thanks to a four-run fourth inning that has made it 6-4 St. Louis after six innings. Lance Lynn, who had a no-hitter through three innings, did not make it out of the fourth due to a two-out rally.

Marco Scutaro led off the inning with a single to left, but Lynn recovered to strike out Pablo Sandoval and got Buster Posey to fly out. He would not retire another batter though.

Hunter Pence singled to keep the inning alive and then Brandon Belt delivered an RBI single to make it 6-1. Gregor Blanco delivered a two-run triple and then scored on a double from Brandon Crawford.

Tim Lincecum provided two innings of scoreless relief for the Giants, who failed to add any more runs in the sixth and seventh.

Lynn was replaced by Joe Kelly, who provided a scoreless inning of work before giving way to the rest of the St. Louis bullpen.
