A brutal day for San Francisco sports on Sunday. First, the Giants lost Game 1 of the National League Championship Series to the Cardinals, 6-4. "Madison Bumgarner allowed six runs before his fourth-inning exit," notes this morning's Chronicle, adding that the "Giants charged back with four in the bottom half but got skunked the rest of the way."

St. Louis will take on the Giants in Game 2 of the NLCS at AT&T Park tonight at 5 p.m. Fingers crossed, folks.

Also ruining Sunday, the Niners were toppled by the New York Giants. Daisy Barringer will have a full report on the Niners' fumble later today.
