Giants leave more runners on, Cards hold 2-1 lead

The Giants have 12 runners through the first six innings. That's an average of -- hold on, let me get the slide rule out, and ... -- two runners every inning. They have just one run. It has been a frustrating game for the Giants.

And it's not like the runners have been bunched together with a bunch of weirdness mixed in, like triple plays or runners thrown out at the plate. Nope, it's been nice and even, with the Giants leaving two runners on base in three of their six innings, and a double play to end another one. The Giants have left nine on base, hit into two double plays, and are 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position.

Kyle Lohse is the pitcher who allowed the 12 runners, and he left the game after 5⅔ innings, allowing just a run. Trevor Rosenthal relieved him with two runners on, getting Angel Pagan to ground out to end the inning.
