The St Louis Cardinals finally got a hit off of Ryan Vogelsong, but the San Francisco Giants' starter has now struck out a career-high eight batters through five innings as San Francisco still leads 5-0 at AT&T Park. Vogelsong made it through 4 2/3 innings with a no-hitter intact before Daniel Descalso and Peter Kozma each reached on consecutive singles.
Vogelsong was able to get out of the minor two-out jam with a ground ball out by Skip Shumaker. The Giants were not able to add to their lead despite a single by Hunter Pence in the bottom of the fifth.
Shelby Miller has come on to pitch for the Cardinals in place of Chris Carpenter. Miller has only pitched an inning so far, giving up a hit in the bottom of the fifth on 15 pitches. Vogelsong has been the story so far, however, with his second solid outing of the NLCS.
