ST. LOUIS -- Jaime Garcia turned back the clock to his childhood Friday night.Garcia pitched eight scoreless innings and had an RBI single to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves.I think I did it a bunch of times in Little League, Garcia said of the dual production. I think the only thing that would have made it better would be to hit a home run for the only run.Garcia (8-8) became the first Cardinals pitcher with the lone RBI in a 1-0 win since Harvey Haddix did it against Pittsburgh on July 17, 1955. Garcia struck out 11 as he topped the 100-strikeout mark for the third time in his career.Garcia entered the game with a .167 average and he wasnt about to puff out his chest about his production.Im not a good hitter, but I try my best to get a good swing at the ball, Garcia said.He pitched out of a two-on, no out jam in the fourth, striking out Freddie Freeman and Matt Kemp before getting Adonis Garcia to ground out. Freeman and Kemp, the Braves Nos. 3 and 4 hitters, were a combined 0 for 6 against Jaime Garcia with five strikeouts.Garcias two-out single in the second drove in Matt Holliday for the pitchers fourth RBI this season. Braves right fielder Jeff Francoeur thought he had a play on Holliday at the plate.It was just a bad throw, kind of straight in the ground, which I dont usually do, Francoeur said. So that was a frustrating one.Garcia needed just 89 pitches to get through eight innings, facing three batters over the minimum.You could tell the breaking ball and change-up were falling off the table, but he went to his sinker whenever he needed to and he wasnt even in a lot of deep counts, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Thats why he only threw 89 pitches through eight innings.Seung Hwan Oh got the last three outs for his ninth save.Braves right-hander Joel De La Cruz (0-4) gave up the run and two hits with five walks in 5 1/3 innings.Garcias effort aided a taxed Cardinals bullpen. Prior to his start, five of the last six St. Louis starters failed to pitch into the sixth inning.It was huge, trying to get our bullpen another full day, Matheny said. But we would have had Oh up and hot again so it wasnt like he was going to sit around.The Cardinals have won six of their last eight games at home to improve to 26-30 at Busch Stadium. St. Louis has won all four games this season against the Braves.Atlantas Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 16 games by leading the game off with a single.Atlanta has lost eight of its last 11 games at St. Louis.HEAD OVER HEELSBraves 3B Adonis Garcia tumbled into the camera well next to the Atlanta dugout to make an acrobatic catch on Brandon Moss pop foul in bottom of the third inning.It was awesome, Francoeur said. I actually saw him from right field disappear and the next thing I saw was a baseball coming over the thing. It was a great play.WELCOME BACKCardinals All-Star INF Matt Carpenter returned from the disabled list after missing 24 games with a right oblique strain.

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Shin-Soo Choo let his bat and his teammates do the talking for him Wednesday night. Choos two-out single in the 11th inning drove in Todd Frazier from second base, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-2 win over the San Francisco Giants. Frazier walked to lead off the 11th against left-hander Javier Lopez (1-1) and went to second on Chris Heiseys sacrifice. After Devin Mesoraco was intentionally walked, pinch hitter Ryan Hanigan popped out before Choo came up with his second hit of the game, giving the Reds three straight wins for the first time since June 10-12 against the Cubs and thrilling a sellout crowd of 40,757. The left-handed Choo almost won the game in the ninth, but his sharp one-hopper up the middle with Mesoraco on second was picked off backhanded by second baseman Tony Abreu for a groundout. "Ive been saying that hes one of the best hitters in the game, and Im sticking with that," said Frazier, whose bobblehead was one of the games attractions. "He makes adjustments. Thats what he did his last two at-bats." Choos hard-hit ball to Abreu was typical of his recent bad luck, according to manager Dusty Baker. After a hot start, Choos average was .269 going into the game. "The guy he got the hit off of is tough against left-handers," Baker said. "Hes been hitting the ball well lately with nothing to show for it." Choo was working out rafter the game and wasnt available to speak to the media. J.J. Hoover (2-5), Cincinnatis seventh pitcher of the game, struck out four batters in two innings for the win. "We were down to our last man," Baker said. "We cleared the bench trying to win that game." The spiraling Giants have lost nine of their last 10 games, including eight of nine on the current road trip, and have scored two or fewer runs in 10 of their last 13 games. They fell six games below .500 for the first time since the last day of the 2008 season, which they finished 72-90. "We had a good effort from our bullpen," manager Bruce Bochy said. "We couldnt get a hit with men in scoring position. We have too many guys scuffling. I dont know why, whether they are pressing or trying too hard. I wish I had the answer. It seems like weve been saying this for quite a while. We need someone to give us a spark and get a big hit. When you get in a rut like this, you try too hard. We were playing to win one game to get us out of it." In their first game after being held hitless by Homer Bailey on Tuesday, the Giants needed just two batters to remove any doubt.dddddddddddd Abreu, San Franciscos No. 2 hitter against Tony Cingrani, reached second base with a bloop double down the right field line for the Giants first hit in 11 innings since Brandon Belt led off the fifth with a home run in an 8-1, six-inning loss to the Reds on Monday. The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the second, which Giants starter Barry Zito opened by hitting Jay Bruce with a pitch. Bruce went to third on Fraziers single to centre field and scored on Heiseys sacrifice fly. The Giants took their first lead of the series in the fifth when Blanco drew a two-out walk and Abreu followed with a 442-foot blast into the upper deck in left field on Cingranis 1-1 pitch. The homer was Abreus first since last Sept. 16 for Kansas City against the Angels. Cingrani, making his eighth start of the season and first since Johnny Cueto went on the disabled list June 29 with a strained back muscle, allowed four hits and two runs with four walks and five strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings. His walks were a single-game career high as a starter. Zito left the game after Choo and Zack Cozart led off the fifth with singles. Zito allowed seven hits and one run with a walk and three strikeouts. Heisey, on the disabled list from April 29 to June 25 with a strained right hamstring, tied the game with a 422-foot solo homer into the left field seats on a one-strike pitch from George Kontos. The homer was Heiseys third of the season and first since April 23 against the Cubs in Cincinnati. "It seemed like Heisey had no interest in the fastball," Kontos said. "It was a slider low and away. Unfortunately, it didnt bounce. He hit it off his front foot, and it carried. It is definitely frustrating." NOTES: Heisey made his first start in the field since coming off the disabled list on June 25. Heisey started at designated hitter in one game each at Texas and Oakland on Cincinnatis last road trip. ... The sellout crowd that showed up for Fraziers bobblehead night and postgame fireworks was Cincinnatis ninth of the season. The team had a club-record 15 last season. ... Tightness in Marco Scutaros back prompted Giants manager Bruce Bochy to give the second baseman Wednesday night off. ... RHP Matt Cain is scheduled to start for San Francisco against RHP Mike Leake in Thursdays finale of the four-game series.
