(Reuters) - A walk-off home run by St. Louis second baseman Kolten Wong gave the Cardinals a 5-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday to even their the National League Championship Series at one game each.

The Giants had tied the score at 4-4 in the top of the ninth on a wild pitch by St. Louis reliever Trevor Rosenthal but Wong's lead-off blast to right field in the bottom of the inning won the game and sends the series to California for Game Three on Tuesday all square.
