It was the first game of a split doubleheader after being postponed from Friday. The Giants and Cardinals played a doubleheader in St. Louis for the first time since July 16, 1978.

Miller (6-3) scattered six hits, stranding seven runners. His ERA dropped to 1.82. Miller struck out seven with one walk.

Matt Cain (4-3) fell to 0-3 at Busch Stadium with an 8.87 ERA in four starts.
