Marco Scutaro's fourth-inning single spurred the San Francisco Giants to a 7-1 victory over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Monday to tie the National League Championship Series at one game all.
Scutaro survived a heavy collision with a hard-sliding Matt Holliday in the first inning, which would eventually force him out of the game, but his fourth-inning single scored three runs to put the Giants ahead 5-1.
Scutaro finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs and was replaced by Ryan Theriot in the top of the sixth.
It was the Giants' first home win in this season's playoffs after they lost two at AT&T Park to open the division series with the Reds before coming back to win three in a row in Cincinnati.
The series continues with Game Three in St. Louis on Wednesday.
