Giants Outlast Cardinals

Patrick Bailey sparked a go-ahead rally in the eighth inning with a double off an 11-pitch at-bat and scored on Brandon Crawford's tiebreaking RBI single to help the Giants to a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.


Mitch Haniger drove in two runs, and Wilmer Flores had three hits for the Giants, who have won five of seven. San Francisco, which took the opener of the three-game set, has won just two of nine series in St. Louis since 2013.


Bailey also threw out Jordan Walker trying to steal in the third inning with a bullet throw that landed right on the bag.


Haniger's single to right field in the seventh inning scored Flores and tied the game at 3-all.


In the eighth, Bailey doubled with one out off reliever Chris Stratton (1-1) and scored on the hit by Crawford, who pitched one inning of relief on Sunday in a 13-3 win over the Chicago Cubs.


Paul Goldschmidt and Paul DeJong homered for St. Louis, which has lost 10 of its last 13 games.


Goldschmidt poked a two-run homer of Webb in the sixth inning, giving the Cardinals a 3-2 lead. DeJong connected on a solo shot off Webb in the fifth.


Webb (5-6) allowed three runs on seven hits over seven innings. He struck out six.


St. Louis starter Matthew Liberatore gave up two runs on seven hits over six innings.


The Giants have won their last four road games and are 9-2 in their last 11 away from home.


Cardinals RHP Ryan Helsley has been placed on the 15-day injured list with right forearm strain. He is 3-4 with 3.24 ERA. Helsley recorded seven saves in 11 opportunities before losing the closer job. RHP Jake Woodford was recalled from Triple-A Memphis. Woodford was 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three rehab assignments while recovering from right should inflammation.


San Francisco RHP Alex Cobb (5-2, 3.01) will face RHP Jack Flaherty (3-4, 4.15) in the second game of the three-game series on Tuesday. Flaherty is 1-1 with a 3.80 ERA in four career starts against the Giants. He tossed six scoreless inning in a no-decision against Texas on Wednesday.
