St. Louis Cardinals’ Daniel Descalso hopes for better decisive encounter – NLCS Update

Despite a humiliating 6-1 defeat from the San Francisco Giants, the St. Louis Cardinals' second baseman Daniel Descalso is hoping a better next and decisive encounter on Monday, October 22 at AT&T Park in San Francisco, California.
"We've been in this spot before, We're not going to be intimidated by it." second baseman Daniel Descalso said.
Descalso also could not play well on his four at-bats but he did explain quite briefly about his team and its overall performance.      
“Having a lot of guys that are used to competing in that situation is a benefit, [The Giants] have guys that have done it, too. They have a lot of experience. I think that's one of the things that makes tomorrow night intriguing. I don't think you're going to see a choke job," sidelined Cardinals' star Lance Berkman said on his team’s aspects which did not go well with manager’s strategy. Cardinals were hammered by the Giants on Sunday when their starter Ryan Vogelsong rattled them with great force.
He pitched seven solid innings and received only one run and four hits. He struck-out nine while his ERA remained consistent at 1.29.
“I saw how our team was feeding off of that, And I just knew that I had to keep them off the board early and give us a chance to do something offensively," Vogelsong said later in the game about his brilliant outing.       
Many in the Cardinals side also appreciated the Giants’ pitcher who certainly outplayed them in every manner. He pitched with full speed and did not show any loop-holes in his game.
Not only Giants’ starter played well in that all important crucial game, but the entire batting line-up also performed with big heart and hammered the Cardinals with great force.
Second baseman Marco Scutaro batted well on his three at-bats. He scored two runs and smashed two hits along with two RBI on his consistent .583 slugging percentage.
First baseman Brandon Belt also showed his offensive ball play and scored two runs and smashed two hits for the Giants on his .444 slugging percentage.
