San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - David Freese and Carlos Beltran each hit a two-run homer to lead the St. Louis Cardinals past the San Francisco Giants, 6-4, in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series at AT&T Park.

Jon Jay and Pete Kozma also drove in runs for the Cardinals, who are coming off a 3-2 series win over the Washington Nationals in the NLDS.

Lance Lynn got the start for St. Louis and surrendered four runs on five hits and two walks over 3 2/3 innings, but six relievers combined to allow just two hits and a pair of walks the rest of the way.

Edward Mujica (1-0) struck out the side in a perfect inning of relief to earn the win, while Jason Motte worked a scoreless ninth inning to record the save.

Madison Bumgarner (0-1) was touched for six runs on eight hits and a walk through 3 2/3 frames to take the loss for San Francisco, which also went the distance in its NLDS series, edging the Cincinnati Reds, 3-2.
