Cardinals end road trip with win over Giants

SAN FRANCISCO--AT & T PARK--The St. Louis Cardinals took the last game of a three-game series with the San Francisco Giants, 7-5, Sunday, behind the pitching of Jaime Garcia (7-4).

Kevin Siegrist, a bit rocky in his previous performance in closing while Trevor Rosenthal is away on paternity leave, earned his sixth save of the season.

Jason Heyward had the best offensive day, going 3-for-5, including a double and a triple.

Hitting solo homers for the Cards were Matt Carpenter (20), Brandon Moss (17), and Mark Reynolds (12).

The Cardinals travel back to Busch Stadium to being a nine-game home stand, starting off with the Washington Nationals.
