Pagan’s shot came soon after Scutaro was wiped out.

“We felt for him,” Pagan said. “We felt a little bit of anger. I haven’t seen the replay, so I can’t judge if it was dirty or not. Any time you see a teammate fall down like that, you really feel for him.”

The Cardinals tied it in the second inning when Pete Kozma drew a two-out walk and scored on Carpenter’s RBI double, his third hit already this postseason.

But Carpenter, making his fifth appearance in 2012 after complicated surgery to remove a rib and two neck muscles, wasn’t nearly as sharp on the mound or in the field. He allowed five runs — two earned — and six hits in four innings, failing to add to his 10 career postseason wins.

NOTES: Philadelphia’s Jimmy Rollins is the only other player with two leadoff homers in a single postseason, doing it in 2008. … Cardinals OF Carlos Beltran reached base three times, doubling twice and walking once. … Giants 3B coach Tim Flannery performed the national anthem with the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Phil Lesh. … Vogelsong doubled in the sixth to become the first Giants pitcher to get a postseason extra-base hit since Jack Bentley homered in the 1924 World Series.
