Jason Motte goes 2, makes Cardinals’ wait worth it in Game 3 of NLCS
Question of the Day
The Giants entered 70-22 when scoring first, including the postseason, and took the lead in the third on Pablo Sandoval’s run-scoring groundout after leadoff hits by Angel Pagan and Scutaro, whose legs looked just fine on an opposite-field double flared just over first baseman Allen Craig’s glove.
Beltran leads all players with eight extra-base hits in the 2012 playoffs and is a career .375 hitter in the postseason, highest ever among players with a minimum of 100 at-bats.
NOTES: Danny Cox, who pitched for Cardinals World Series teams in 1985 and 1987, threw a perfect strike on the first pitch. … Jay, who was hit by a pitch to start the game, was plunked 15 times in the regular season. … Matheny had 122 lineups during the regular season but has stuck with the same eight throughout the postseason. … The Cardinals‘ win ended a streak of scoring at least six runs in the last eight postseason victories dating to Game 3 of the World Series last year, the longest streak of its kind in postseason history. St. Louis entered averaging 7.6 runs in 16 wins the last two postseasons and just 2.3 runs in the 10 losses. … Carpenter and Pete Kozma are the first Cardinals rookie teammates to homer in the same postseason history. … David Freese had two hits for St. Louis and is a career .455 hitter (15 for 33) in the NLCS with four homers, four doubles and 11 RBIs.
