San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Vernon Davis had eight catches for 180 yards and two touchdowns -- almost all of it coming in the first half -- and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Arizona Cardinals 32-20 on Sunday for their third straight win.

Davis was a frequent target of Colin Kaepernick early on, catching seven passes for 171 yards and two scores before halftime, including a 61-yarder.

Kaepernick had 252 yards passing, but also turned the ball over twice, and Frank Gore ran for 101 yards on 25 carries for the 49ers (4-2), who have beaten the Cardinals five straight times at home.

Kendall Hunter had a 9-yard touchdown run for the 49ers in the fourth quarter that came after a Larry Fitzgerald fumble and capped a 9 1/2-minute drive spanning 18 plays and 89 yards.

The Cardinals (3-3) had a two-game winning streak snapped and will have just three days off before playing Seattle at home on Thursday night.

Carson Palmer threw for 298 yards and two touchdowns -- a 75-yard hookup with Fitzgerald and a 10-yard pass to Michael Floyd -- but threw two interceptions that led to field goals for San Francisco.

Andre Ellington added a 15-yard touchdown run in the loss.
