ST. LOUIS (AP) — Marco Scutaro hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high seven runs, leading Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants to a 15-0 romp over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. Scutaro doubled, singled and then hit his third career slam, connecting in the ninth off Mitchell Boggs. Ahead 2-0, the Giants broke it open with five runs in the sixth. They turned the game into a rout with four runs in the eighth and four more in the ninth. Vogelsong (10-5) gave up three hits in seven innings. He has gone at least six innings in all 21 of his starts, the longest such streak for a Giants pitcher since Bill Swift did it 24 straight times in 1993.
