Giants force Game 7 in the NLCS

Cardinals again can’t close it out

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Giants seem to be taking on the toughness of Marco Scutaro, a player they didn’t acquire until July 27 from Colorado. He has raised the intensity level of the entire team.

The Giants forced Game 7 of the National League Championship Series with a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday night at AT&T Park, and might be seeing the second coming of Cody Ross, who won the NLCS MVP in 2010 and led the Giants to a World Series championship.
