Giants widen Wild Card lead
Behind Johnny Cueto the Giants widened their wild card lead by defeating the Cardinals, one of the teams chasing them 6 – 2. Cueto did what he’s being paid to do, and the Giant offense woke up against Adam Wainwright.
Combine that with the Mets having an off day, the Giants now have a one-game lead over the Mets and more importantly a two-game lead over the Cardinals.
The Mets gained a game on the Cardinals with that off day, which for them is much more important than chasing down the Giants.
