Hundley Homers in 10th As Giants Top Cards

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Nick Hundley hit a game-ending homer in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 on Saturday despite a stellar pitching performance from Lance Lynn.

Hundley led off with an opposite-field drive to right on a 1-0 slider from Ryan Sherriff (0-1).

The Cardinals failed to score in the top of the 10th after Dexter Fowler led off with a triple against Sam Dyson (2-2). Third baseman Pablo Sandoval threw Fowler out at the plate on Stephen Piscotty’s one-out grounder.

Lynn struck out four and walked four while pitching eight shutout innings of one-hit ball. The right-hander pitched eight or more scoreless innings for the first time since June 23, 2014, against the Rockies in Colorado.
