      Giants hammer Cardinals


      ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Tim Hudson threw seven shutout innings and Joaquin Arias keyed a four-run first inning with a two-run single to lead the San Francisco Giants to an 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.


      The Giants have won five of six and have the best record in the NL at 37-20.


      St. Louis has lost four of five. The Cardinals managed just four hits.


      Hudson (6-2) gave up three hits, struck out six, and walked two in improving to 4-4 against St. Louis. Hudson's previous win against the Cardinals came on July 19, 2007, as a member of the Atlanta Braves. He retired the last 11 batters he faced.


      Lance Lynn (6-3) took the loss for St. Louis, giving up seven runs in 3 1/3 innings.
