SAN FRANCISCO -- Jhonny Peralta knew he hit it well. He didnt know how well until the ball landed in the seats. Peraltas two-run homer produced the first runs scored by St. Louis in its first at-bat since June 18, a span of 14 games, leading the Cardinals past the reeling San Francisco Giants 7-2 on Thursday. "Id heard from the guys that you need to hit it hard to get it out here," Peralta said. Carlos Martinez (2-3) earned his second win as a starter and added a two-run single for the Cardinals, who won their second straight after losing three in a row. Martinez allowed a run and five hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out six. "Weve had our struggles at the plate," Peralta said. "It was good to start it off in the first inning." Madison Bumgarner (9-6) fell to 0-3 over his past four home starts after allowing five runs -- four earned -- and six hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out six. Bumgarner also drove in a run for the Giants, who have lost 17 of 22 and fell out of first place in the NL West. "You always want to play at home and I havent pitched very good here all year," Bumgarner said. "I dont know what it is. You cant give in, you have to keep grinding." Help could be on the way. The Giants optioned first baseman Adam Duvall to Triple-A Fresno after the game in anticipation of recalling Brandon Belt in time for Fridays game in San Diego. "Hes somebody we like having out there," Bumgarner said. "Its not going to do anything but help us." Angel Pagan may return to the Giants lineup early next week, giving them some semblance of order at the top of the lineup. Matt Carpenter continued ripping Giants pitching, extending his hitting streak against them to 11 games with a 2-for-4 effort. He has a .519 (28 for 54) career average against the Giants and has hit safely in 18 of his 20 games, including the post-season, against them. "Its one of those crazy things," Carpenter said. "Luck has been on my side so far I guess." Yadier Molina added three hits and Oscar Tavares, John Jay and Shane Robinson each drove in a run for the Cardinals. Peraltas first-inning home run, after Carpenter drew a walk, put St. Louis ahead to stay. "I was able to work the walk and Jhonny hit the home run," Carpenter said. "That kind of set the tone and we found a way to pile it on." Bumgarner drove in a run for the Giants in the third, but then gave up three runs in the fourth -- two on a single from Martinez. Robinson, pinch hitting for Martinez in the sixth, tripled home a run. Tavares added an RBI in the seventh. The Giants loaded the bases with two outs in the fifth, but Martinez got Buster Posey on a swinging strike three to end the threat. In the sixth, Tyler Colvin walked, Adam Duvall singled and Brandon Crawford punched a single into right field. An error allowed Colvin to score. Sam Freeman, Seth Maness and Jason Motte combined to keep the Giants at bay. NOTES: Giants INF Joe Panik batted second, where he hit for Triple-A Fresno, as manager Bruce Bochy tweaked the lineup. "He has some sense of comfort there," Bochy said. ... OF Hunter Pence hit lead off and OF Gregor Blanco was dropped to eighth. ...

Not the ideal prep for the .PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Ben Roethlisberger doesnt need to bother with the math, not matter how simple the equation.The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback understands a win over Kansas City on Sunday sends his team back to the playoffs for the first time in three years. If Roethlisberger is being honest though, the post-season truly began a month ago.Weve kind of had that mentality for the last couple weeks that its time to get hot and play our best football, Roethlisberger said.Anything less and the Steelers (9-5) will be home in January yet again. At least Pittsburgh has some wiggle room. A loss and Kansas City (8-6) will need a victory over San Diego in the regular season finale and plenty of help.Quarterback Alex Smith would just as soon not have to spend the last Sunday of the year staring at a scoreboard during timeouts.You have been working hard to put yourself in this position, Smith said. You wanted the stages to get bigger and bigger and be more meaningful and here we are.How long the Chiefs stay there will depend on if they can slow down the NFLs top-ranked offence, one led by a guy who knows a thing or two about the Chiefs.Pittsburgh offensive co-ordinator Todd Haley spent two-plus seasons as Kansas City head coach from 2009-11, leading the Chiefs to an unlikely AFC West title in 2010 before it all fell apart.Haley has resurrected his career calling plays for the Steelers, who are poised to lead the league in total yardage for only the second time in team history behind Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back LeVeon Bell.Its heady territory for a franchise traditionally built from the defence up. Not so much anymore. If anything, its the Chiefs who have adopted Pittsburghs formula for success.Kansas City relies on steady if unflashy play from Smith, a one-two punch of Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis at running back and a swarming front seven led by outside linebacker Justin Houston, whose 17 sacks are tied for the NFL lead.Houston is close friends with Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones, a bond forged when they played together at Georgia. Houston serves as a mentor of sorts to Jones, who has dealt with injuries issues in his first two years in the league. Jones describes Houston as a freak and one who happens to have something Jones has yet to experience: a playoff game. Jones can fix that problem on Sunday.ddddddddddddIts starting to come together, Jones said. A lot of us young guys, this is our first go-round with this. Its why were here and we hope were ready.Other things to look for as the Chiefs search for their first victory in Pittsburgh since 1986.DO IT ALL: Charles has been one of the NFLs most versatile backs in his seven seasons in the league. Pittsburghs LeVeon Bell appears ready to join the group. Bell is second in the AFC in yards rushing and second in the NFL in total offence. The one thing Bell is still learning to do is finish drives. Thats never been a problem for Charles, who has 14 total touchdowns.PLAYING IT SAFE: Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce has been dynamic with the ball in his hands. The problem is making sure it stays there. Kelce has four fumbles this season, including a costly mistake against Arizona two weeks ago that cost the Chiefs a shot at a victory.BROWN DELIVERS: Antonio Brown is nine receptions away from the second-greatest season by a receiver in league history. Brown already has a club-record 115 catches this year, remarkable considering the massive amount of attention he receives.You name it theyve tried it, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. But its a testament to him. But not only just him but the balance that weve been able to strike with our offence.GETTING HEALTHY: The Steelers have been forced to get creative with their linebackers. Jones, James Harrison and Ryan Shazier have all missed extended time due to various injuries, but they are all expected to play against the Chiefs. That should give defensive co-ordinator Dick LeBeau with plenty of fresh legs to experiment with as Pittsburgh tries to disrupt Kansas Citys methodical offence.ONE DIMENSIONAL: Kansas Citys inability to throw touchdown passes to wide receivers has become a bit of a running joke. A Chiefs wideout hasnt scored in a regular-season game in more than a year, though thats hardly slowed Kansas City down. If anything, it makes the effectiveness of Charles and Davis even more impressive.The fact that theyre still winning games and havent been able to have passing touchdowns like that, it shows that theyre a very resourceful team, Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats said.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
