St. Louis vs. San Francisco,

Score: 1 - 7
Money Line: -112 San Francisco
After losing Game 1 of this series, I fully expect the San Francisco Giants to bounce back with a victory in Game 2 tonight. They are 0-3 at home in the postseason, and there's no question they are going to be highly motivated to win in front of their home fans.
I love their chances of doing just that with the underrated Ryan Vogelsong on the mound at this steal of a price. Vogelsong is 14-9 with a 3.33 ERA in 32 starts this season, 7-4 with a 2.86 ERA in 15 home starts, and 1-0 with a 0.56 ERA in his last three.
The right-hander has allowed just one earned run over 16 innings in his last three outings. Vogelsong is 1-0 with a 0.75 ERA in his last two starts against the Cardinals, yielding just one earned run over 12 innings.
Chris Carpenter is 4-12 (-15.8 Units) against the money line after 2 or more consecutive wins over the last 2 seasons. The Giants are 9-2 in Vogelsong's last 11 starts as a home favorite. San Francisco is 14-5 in its last 19 games following a loss. Take the Giants Monday.
