Logan is solid for 6, the Giants beat the Cardinals for the sixth straight win

St. Lewis (AFP) – Logan Webb made six strong runs and the San Francisco Giants won their sixth game in a row by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2 on Friday night.

Kurt Casale hit his first home of the season in five runs in the eighth inning. St. Louis lost five of six.

“I was expecting some kind of change and was able to stick with it long enough to get her out of here,” Casale said. “It’s not easy to do that in this big football stadium.”

Webb (5-1) only gave up one game despite allowing the front racket to reach in five rounds. He didn’t allow a hit until the rose-assisted single Brendan Donovan took a fifth and turned his defense into a pair of double plays behind him.



“Logan has set a really high bar for himself, but he’s still a developing young player, not the most experienced amongst our staff, and he’s kind of taken on the role of number one on the staff,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said. “He’s still growing, he’s still learning the league, he’s still learning himself.”

Webb allowed three hits, walked three times and hit one. He said there was plenty of room for improvement.

“I think it was the first six hitters I was 0-2…so it’s like putting the guys away now just not there,” Webb said.

Dominic Lyon, Zach Little and Garleen Garcia all made a run to complete the six hits together.

Casale’s two-running drive was his first home since August 3rd.

“Longo was a huge hit for us,” Kapler said. “It’s a big break and I think Kurt gave us a chance to use the bulls game differently.”

Cardinal Jordan Hicks (1-3) threw 77 throws through five rounds, both career highs for a converted savior.

“The quality of the last two rounds, he felt really good and looked good, and if it was up to him, he would have been fine to go back there,” Cardinals coach Oliver Marmol said. “We made it onto the pitch where we felt comfortable being able to build on it next time.”

The Giants profited from the Cardinal’s errors that spanned the second and third half.

Luis González’s RBI song got the Giants on the plate in the second. Hicks hit Brandon Crawford for the third game, but the third hit was a wild ground that allowed Crawford to reach and make Gonzalez.

Mike Jastrzemski fired two runs off the mitt of midfielder Harrison Bader to advance 3-1 into third. Jock Pederson had lined up with Donovan before this, but the short man double-handed his throw for pole position, allowing Wilmer Flores to return safely and canceling out a potential double play.

“We have a Gold Glove caliber everywhere and for me to stand here in front of the cameras and say anything else is just not true,” Hicks said. “Everyone has their days and obviously there were a few plays that bothered me a bit and I want to be able to polish up again and refocus on the next pitch.”

Lamonte Wade Jr. has reached three times and scored a run for the Giants, all without scoring a hit. Wade walked twice and hit a pitch.

Paul Goldschmidt reached Little Little in eighth to extend the Cardinals’ home streak to nine games.
