The San Francisco Giants defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 Monday night to even the series at 1-1.
Marco Scutaro bounced back from Matt Hollidays Hard slide to deliver a two-run single off Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter that broke the game open in a four-run fourth.
Scutaro left after five innings because of an injured left hip, and was going for X-rays.
Ryan Vogelsong pitched seven strong innings for the victory.
Game 3 is set for 3-pm Wednesday in St. Louis.
