Hundley delivers walk-off homer as Giants top Cards

SAN FRANCISCO — Nick Hundley saved a sparkling start from pitcher Jeff Samardzija, lifting a walk-off home run into the first row of the arcade in the 10th inning.


After producing just one hit over the game’s first eight innings, the Giants found a way to squeak out a pair of hits in the ninth to send the game to extra innings before Hundley delivered a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals by blasting his second-career walk off homer off reliever Ryan Sherriff.

In doing so, the Giants snapped a four-game losing streak.

Hunter Pence started the comeback charge in the ninth by hitting a ground ball single up the middle. After Joe Panik moved Pence over to second with a sacrifice bunt, Buster Posey tied the game by reaching down to bloop Cardinals pitcher Tyler Lyons’ low slider over second baseman Kolten Wong’s head.
