ST. Louis (AP) – Harrison Bader has joined St. Louis with a tested single from the Giants ’first basemen LaMonte Wade Jr. put forward in the seventh round and the Cardinals beat San Francisco 2-1 on Sunday. .
The Cardinals won the series this season, out of three against the Giants in both series against them.
Matt Carpenter doubled the ground rule to a straight line, connecting with former ex-wife John Brebbia (0-1) in the seventh. Jose Rondon was brought into hiding and he was taken to the third by a flight by Paul Dejong. With the inside pitch, Bader hit a bullet that knocked Wad off his glove and hit Rondon.
Bader is now 6 for 14 in his last five games.
“You know Harrison fought and put the ball into play and we were in touch,” Cardinals manager Mike Schildt said. “Harrison dropped that line and created some opportunities for himself. Some baseball situation is really good. ”
Alex Reyes won three final games for St. Louis, and set a major league record for his career with a 24-yard touchdown run. LaTroy Hawkins had a previous record of 23.
“I try to go there and not think about it and just compete. I feel like it makes everything easier instead of thinking about the bigger picture, ”Reyes said.
DeJong opened the scoring in the third when he made the change to the left-hander 0-1. Home was DeJong’s third in his last five games.
It was the only damage that Giants singer Johnny Cueto allowed. Queto put up five innings, allowing one run in two shots, took one step on foot and hit five. Queto returned after allowing four runs and nine shots in his final start against St. Louis, losing 6-5 in San Francisco.
“I thought we were all confident enough to face Queto and we knew what we had,” Dejong said. “He put in a decent hike, but we got him out early and got the job done.”
The Giants closed the game at the top of the quarter when Darin Ruff headed into the left side for the 10th round of his season with a left-footed shot on the left wall. It was Ruth’s second homer in her last four games with the Cardinals.
It was all a matter of getting the giants. St. Louis Ryan Helsley, Genesis Cabrera (2-3), Giovanni Gallegos and Reyes threw four unmarked shots. Reyes scored his 22nd save of the season.
LeBlanc dropped five-plus yards, allowing five shots on goal, hitting one man on foot and hitting three.
The giants left the bases, which had been loaded in the first and sixth rounds.
“I think it’s really important to use past experiences to remind us of our good grades,” said Giants manager Gabe Kapler. “(And) more importantly, we need to be reminded that very good offensive teams, very good baseball teams go through periods where you’re just dry.”
Paul Goldschmidt hit the left in the fourth round, extending his strikeout streak to 13 games. This is the longest series of any Cardinal this season.
Cueto won 2,000 professional innings. She is the eighth most active potter in the innings.

Cardinals: Schildt said the RHP bullp session of Jack Flaherty (left-leaning left) went well and he is moving forward. Schildt also said management is debating whether RHP Miles Mycolas (right-hand man) should drop another bulletin board session in St. Louis or go on a small league assignment to recover.
