ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jaime Garcia threw a three-hitter for his first
career shutout and fellow rookie Allen Craig hit a two-run home run
for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 9-0 victory over the San Francisco
Giants on Sunday.
Jon Jay had three hits and an RBI and Brendan Ryan and Yadier
Molina each had two hits and an RBI for the Cardinals, who knocked
out Barry Zito in the fourth inning. St. Louis rebounded from a
five-game losing streak to take two of three from the Giants.
St. Louis, which entered the day 3½ games behind the NL
Central-leading Reds, is 50-27 in games started by Garcia, Adam
Wainwright and Chris Carpenter and 17-27 otherwise.
During the game the Giants were awarded outfielder Cody Ross on
a waiver claim from Florida.
