In somewhere between the 5th-9th last baseball game of the season, the Giants try to stay alive and force a game 7 against the Cardinals, making their second attempt to win the series.

Ryan Vogelsang, who won game 2 for SF, gets the ball today against the tough Chris Carpenter, who dazzled the Giants in game 3. The weather right now in the Bay Area is pleasant and dry, but rain is in the forecast over the next 48 hours -- possibly getting heavy at times Monday -- so we'll see if that becomes a factor at any point.

The starting lineups:

1. Jon Jay (L) CF
2. Matt Carpenter (L) 1B
3. Carlos Beltran (S) RF
4. Allen Craig (R) LF
5. Yadier Molina (R) C
6. David Freese (R) 3B
7. Daniel Descalso (L) 2B
8. Pete Kozma (R) SS
9. Chris Carpenter (R) P


1. Angel Pagan (S) CF
2. Marco Scutaro (R) 2B
3. Pablo Sandoval (S) 3B
4. Buster Posey (R) C
5. Hunter Pence (R) RF
6. Brandon Belt (L) 1B
7. Gregor Blanco (L) LF
8. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
9. Ryan Vogelsong (R) P
