The Giants have grabbed an early 1-0 lead in Game 7 of the NLCS against the Cardinals.

Angel Pagan led off the bottom of the first inning with a single against Kyle Lohse and moved over to third base with an opposite-field single by Marco Scutaro, who now has a 10-game hitting streak during the postseason. Pablo Sandoval then hit a tapper back to Lohse, who couldn’t quite get the handle and had to settle for the out at first base rather than make a play at the plate.

Loshe got Buster Posey to ground out and Hunter Pence to strike out to avoid any further damage, but the early lead for the Giants could be crucial. The first team to score has won five out of the six games during the series.

    The broadcasters said that the Giants park had the lowest amount of home runs in baseball in 2012. Is that true?

      Good pitching staff, big ballpark…seems like it’d be true. But considering the broadcasters, it wouldn’t hurt to do a fact check.

        Might be true. It would be the result of a combination of good pitching and a home team that is not known for hitting long balls.
