ST. LOUIS -- Madison Bumgarner figured he would need to be at the top of his game Friday night when he went up against Adam Wainwright. The San Francisco Giants lefty was just that as he struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings. But it was not much of a pitchers duel, as Burmgarners teammates scored seven times off the St. Louis Cardinals ace on their way to a 9-4 win. Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer off Wainwright, who was chased in the fifth. Bumgarner (7-3) allowed three hits and matched a season high for strikeouts set in his previous start against Minnesota. He walked one. He said pitching against Wainwright gave him all the incentive he needed. "You know youve got to be on it," Bumgarner said. "Youre geared up for a 1-0 game. Fortunately for us, he didnt have it tonight. The offence did an unbelievable job scoring runs off somebody like that." Bumgarner said hes been getting on top of the ball more, which has allowed him to hit both sides of the plate. "He was really good tonight," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He was really hitting his spots on both sides. Hes really been solid with his command here lately and he carried that into todays game against a tough lineup." San Francisco has won eight of nine and owns the best record in the majors at 36-19. Pence had two hits and scored twice. Pablo Sandoval extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single and a double, but his run of nine straight games with an RBI was snapped. "Thats just the way it is," Sandoval said. "Theres not much you can do about it." Hector Sanchez and Gregor Blanco each had a two-run single for the Giants, who scored seven runs with two outs. San Francisco has scored 117 runs with two outs, tops in the big leagues. Angel Pagan had two hits and scored twice for the Giants. "I think weve got a really good team all the way around and weve showed it," Bumgarner said. "The defence was really good. It was just a good team win tonight." Jon Jay hit a three-run double off San Francisco reliever David Huff in the eighth. Allen Craig added an RBI double against Juan Gutierrez. Wainwright (8-3) entered with a 20-inning scoreless streak and a major league-leading 1.67 ERA. He was trying to become the first nine-game winner in the National League, but lasted just 4 1-3 innings and allowed seven earned runs on eight hits. His ERA jumped to 2.32. "Its a very deep lineup," Wainwright said. "When you take a guy like (Buster) Posey out of the lineup and still have a very dangerous squad, you know you have a deep lineup." The Giants wasted no time ending Wainwrights shutout streak. Pagan led off the game with a double down the left field line. He moved to third on Pences fly to right and scored on Michael Morses two-out single. San Francisco then broke the game open by scoring four times off Wainwright in the second inning after the first two batters were retired. Brandon Hicks kept the inning going by coaxing a walk. Hicks went to third on Bumgarners single to left and scored when Pagan followed with a single to centre. Pence then hit a 447-foot shot into the third deck in left field to make it 5-0. "He said he felt fine," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said about Wainwright. "I think it was just one of those nights. Hes had so many good ones this year, youre going to have those every once in a while." Wainwright was pulled after allowing a single to Sandoval and a double by Morse with one out in the fifth. Sandoval and Morse both ended up scoring on Blancos two-out single off reliever Seth Maness. NOTES: The Giants own the National Leagues best road winning percentage at .630 (17-10). ...

Bad. Sharp. Sloppy. The Pittsburgh Steelers cant seem to figure out who or what they are on a given week.And time is running out.Pittsburghs baffling season made another abrupt U-turn in Sundays 35-32 loss to New Orleans. A rested and healthy defence gave up five touchdown passes to Drew Brees. An offence that has hummed efficiently for the better part of two months turned it over twice and sputtered in scoring range.Now a resume that already includes puzzling upset losses to Tampa Bay and the New York Jets can add another unwanted line: a one-sided defeat to a team that began the day with four wins.Its got to stop, Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said. Everybody. Top to bottom. Weve got to stop doing this. Were shooting ourselves in the foot and weve got too many good guys, too many good players to not win these games.Pittsburgh (7-5) believed the return of veterans Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu from injury would provide the jolt necessary to help propel it through December and beyond. While the Steelers remain very much in the picture in the muddled AFC North, they hardly looked like post-season material while Brees turned an early deficit into a borderline blowout before a pair of late scores made the final closer than the reality.Every game is a playoff game from here on out, safety Mike Mitchell said. We needed to have a sense of urgency for this game and just came up short.Way short.Though Ben Roethlisberger passed for 435 yards and two touchdowns, he also tossed a pair of picks the Saints converted into scores. LeVeon Bell racked up 254 total yards — 159 receiving, 95 rushing — and Antonio Brown caught eight passes for 97 yards and two scores, but both of them came in the final 3 minutes with the Steelers hopelessly behind.Roethlisberger grappled with his accuracy, completing 32 of 58 passes but failed to blame his issues on a bum right hand. He favoured the hand at times in the first half after slamming it on the helmet of New Orleans linebacker Curtis Lofton.It was just one of those days that the balls were coming out high, Roethlisberger said. They tipped a lot of balls, more than usual. I have to make throws early on that I didnt make today and I usually do.While Roethlisberger struggled, Brees soared. Pittsburgh kept New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham without a catch but it hardly mattered. Brees spread his 19 completions to nine different players.Kenny Stillss caught five passes for a career-high 162 yards and a score as the Saints (5-7) ended a three-game losing streak by restoring a little bit of respectability and a sense of order to the NFC South.ddddddddddddBen Watson, Marques Colston, Erik Loring and Nick Toon hauled in touchdowns as New Orleans romped.When you play inconsistent, thats what happens, starting with myself, said Taylor in his first game back since breaking his right forearm in Week 3. Going against a future Hall of Fame quarterback like Drew Brees, youve got to be on your Ps and Qs every game.New Orleans hardly resembled the team that slouched its way through a three-game skid at home, including a 34-27 loss to Baltimore on Monday night. Six days later and 1,100 miles north, the Saints looked reborn.Mark Ingram ran for 122 yards as New Orleans effectively counterpunched with touchdowns while the Steelers piled up field goals.Signs of life from one of the leagues most maligned defences helped. New Orleans forced Roethlisberger into a series of uncharacteristic mistakes. The Pittsburgh quarterback hardly looked like the player who tossed a combined 12 touchdowns in his last two home starts.The passes that zipped so crisply to open receivers during his record-breaking run sailed high and out of reach and occasionally into the arms of Saints defenders.New Orleans led 14-6 in the third quarter when defensive end Cameron Jordan tipped a pass by Roethlisberger and caught it for his first career interception to give the Saints the ball at the Pittsburgh 15. It took Brees two plays to hit Toon for an 11-yard score. The Steelers responded with a 13-play, 83-yard drive that ended with Bell sprinting around left end for his third score of the year.Pittsburghs momentum lasted 2:31, or the time it took New Orleans to go 89 yards. Stills covered the last 69 alone, badly beating Taylor on a double move. He raced across the goal line to make it 28-16 and Brees completed his best day of the season with a 3-yard lob to Colston early in the fourth quarter.NOTES: Steelers DE Brett Keisel left in the third quarter with a triceps injury and did not return. ... Graham was also held without a catch in a Week 7 loss to Detroit. ... Pittsburgh fell to 6-2 after its bye week under coach Mike Tomlin. ...
