Paul Goldschmidt hit two home runs in the sixth inning to lead the St. Louis Cardinals won 3-1 over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night.
This victory broke San Francisco’s five-match winning streak. Two players for the winning series on Sunday afternoon.
The Giants, who won eight out of 10 games on Saturday, came out of the All-Star break with a 7-2 win over the Cardinals on Friday night.
Goldschmidt’s home game opened a close as the Cardinals entered the sixth game with a 1-0 lead.
The Cardinals opened the scoring as Tyler O’Neill led the second with a run home on the right.
In the sixth inning, Dylan Carlson led with a brace deep left center and then returned home from Goldschmidt’s homer on the right.
Giants start Anthony DeSclafani (10-4) was knocked out in the seventh round for a tackle after going six innings, missing three runs with five hits with four hits.
Kwang Hyun Kim (5-5) went through six strong rounds for the Cardinals, skipping only three rounds with one attack. Kim has not been allowed to run in her previous three starts, throwing 19 consecutive innings.
He held the Giants to three hits in seven innings in the previous game in San Francisco on July 5.
The Giants didn’t get on the board until Kim was out of the game.
Rescuer Ryan Helsley overtook Wilmer Flores to take the lead in seventh. Flores finished second with a pass, then scored a goal for Steven Duggar with a shot.
That’s it for the Giants, who were held six times in the game.
St. Louis was closer than Alex Reyes came on in ninth and, after allowing Flores a single lead and a lead over Brandon Crawford, got the next three for his 21st save.
