ST. Jerome Brown Youth Jersey . LOUIS -- Michael Morse rewarded his manager for giving him
a rare day off. Morse homered and drove in three runs and Pablo Sandoval homered
and scored twice to propel the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the St.
Louis Cardinals on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. "It
looked like the day off served him well," said manager Bruce Bochy, who sat
Morse for the first time this season Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs. "A home
run and that big hit off of one of the more dominant closers in the game with
the power arm that he has." The Giants, at the start of a seven-game trip to St.
Louis and Cincinnati, have won seven of eight. The Cardinals have dropped three
of four to start their nine-game home stand. Gregor Blanco scored from second on
Angel Pagans single to centre to tie the score at 4-all in the eighth. Third
base coach Tim Flannery initially held Blanco at third because of centre fielder
Peter Bourjos strong arm. But Blanco scored when the throw bounced on the home
plate side of the mound and past three Cardinals, including Carlos Martinez
(0-3), who was in front of catcher Yadier Molina rather than backing up the
throw. Pagan moved up to second on the throw. Trevor Rosenthal came in after
Martinez intentionally walked Sandoval, but Morse doubled just past a diving
Bourjos to drive in Pagan and Sandoval and give the Giants a 6-4 lead. "I knew
he was going to come with something hard," Morse said. "I just tried to be
short. I just tried to touch something." Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said
Martinez stopped when he saw Blanco stayed at third. He stabbed at the throw
from Bourjos, keeping Molina from making the catch and allowing the ball to go
to the screen. "Yaddy never was able to see the ball," Matheny said. "As soon as
that balls hit, they all know, theyve got to get behind the catcher. He was in
the wrong spot and it ended up hurting." Javier Lopez (1-0) got two groundouts
in relief of Ryan Vogelsong for his first win since Sept. 22, 2013, at the New
York Yankees. Sergio Romo gave up a run on Matt Carpenters two-out single, but
held on for his 17th save in 19 chances. Romo has surrendered four runs in the
past three games and had his ERA rise to 3.52. Morse, in his first season with
the Giants, has nine hits in his past 16 at-bats, with five doubles, a triple
and the home run. Hes driven in eight during that five-game span and has a
team-high 37 RBIs for the year. "Were just playing," he said. "The mentality we
have and the fun were having, I think winning is contagious and we love to win.
Were just going to keep going at it." Vogelsong allowed four runs on seven hits
and three walks while striking out five in 6 1-3 innings. Sandovals eighth homer
of the season tied the score at 3-3 in the sixth inning. The third baseman has
an RBI in each of the past nine games. Hes the first Giant to do that since
Barry Bonds in 2000. Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia went seven innings, giving
up three runs on five hits. He struck out seven and has yet to issue a walk this
season. He was in line for the victory after Allen Craig hit his sixth homer of
the season and second in three games off Vogelsong in the bottom of the sixth.
"We definitely had a bead on that game," Craig said. "It felt like we were going
to win it, but thats baseball. We didnt make enough plays." Vogelsong got into
trouble in the fourth when the Cardinals loaded the bases with none out on
Matt Hollidays single and consecutive walks to Craig and Molina. Jhonny Peralta,
batting .111 (5 of 45) with runners in scoring position, grounded into a double
play, plating Holliday. John Jay drove in Craig with a single to give St. Louis
a 3-2 lead. Morse tied the score at 1-1 with his ninth homer of the season, a
442-foot blast to left centre to lead off the second. Brandon Hicks scored on
Blancos single to give the Giants a 2-1 lead. St. Louis snapped Vogelsongs
scoreless streak at 13 2-3 innings with a run in the first. Craigs ground-rule
double brought home Carpenter, who singled to lead off and stole second with two
outs. NOTES: Carpenters first-inning single extended his NL-best hitting streak
to 11 games. ... The Giants improved to 9-14 when their opponents score first.
... Holliday has reached base safely in all 25 home games. . San Francisco C
Buster Posey didnt play because of an ongoing back issue. Bochy said he is day
to day. ... St. Louis 1B Matt Adams sat for the second consecutive night with a
stiff left calf, though he was available as a pinch hitter. . The Cardinals
entered the game without a home run off Vogelsong in 68 at-bats, and all but
three of their 24 hits were for singles. The Giants had just one homer off
Garcia in 66 at-bats, but seven of their 19 hits went for extra bases. .
Cardinals prospect Tim Cooney had a no-hitter broken up with two outs in ninth
Thursday for Triple-A Memphis. He settled for one-hitter. . St. Louis is set to
start Adam Wainwright (8-2, 1.67) against San Franciscos Madison Bumgarner (6-3,
3.15) on Friday night.

. - Wesley Matthews got a chance to practice his
bow-and-arrow 3-point celebration on Sunday night.

. Sources tell TSN that union executives travelled to select
CFL cities Monday to open dialogue with players and answer questions. After the
tentative deal was reached Saturday night, several players posted messages of
frustration and disappointment on social media - and that carried over into
Sunday on both the web and the field.
. "Rob brings a wealth of coaching experience, having worked both in Canada and
overseas in player development," Canada Soccer technical director Tony Fonseca
said in a release.  The International Olympic Committee is reprimanding athletes
for wearing items commemorating the dead.   IOC spokesman Mark Adams
said Monday the Olympic body sent a letter to the Norwegian Olympic Committee
after its female cross-country skiers wore black armbands Saturday in honor of a
teammates brother, who died on the eve of the Sochi Games.   Adams did not give
details of the IOC letter, saying that was "the end of the matter."   In other
disciplines, the IOC banned helmet stickers in tribute to Canadian halfpipe
skier Sarah Burke, who died after a crash in training two years ago. Adams said
athletes should find "a better place" to express their grief.
Tommy McDonald
.   Australian snowboarder Torah Bright said in an Instagram post on
Friday that the IOC has banned competitors from wearing stickers on their gear.
The IOC considered it to be a "political protest," Bright wrote.   The IOC has
strict rules against protests or propaganda during competitions, outlawing any
demonstrations in Olympic venues. Although a commemoration of a dead athlete can
hardly be considered a political protest, the IOCs tough stance is often
explained by fears that allowing someone to display non-Games-related messages
on the gear would encourage others to use the games for their own gain.
