Dodgers blow 2-run lead but beat Cardinals 5-3


May 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez homered and drove in three runs, Mark Ellis lined a go-ahead double in the sixth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated St. Louis 5-3 on Saturday to snap the Cardinals’ three-game winning streak. The last-place Dodgers, who had lost five of seven, blew a two-run lead before Ellis’ two-out hit off Seth Maness (3-1) scored Carl Crawford from first base to make it 4-3.

Paco Rodriguez (1-2) earned his first major league victory, getting three outs on 10 pitches. Brandon League worked the ninth to earn his 10th save in 12 chances. The NL Central-leading Cardinals tied the game at 3 on David Freese’s broken-bat RBI double and Pete Kozma’s infield single in the sixth. Nick Punto made a diving stop behind third base, but he couldn’t throw out Kozma.

Cardinals beat Dodgers 7-0 behind Lance Lynn


May 25th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lance Lynn pitched two-hit ball over six innings, and David Freese and Allen Craig each homered and drove in three runs, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-0 on Friday night for their third win in a row. The last-place Dodgers’ fifth loss in seven games came a few hours after team president Stan Kasten said manager Don Mattingly was not in immediate danger of being fired.

Lynn (7-1) struck out nine and walked one for the NL Central leaders. The only hits he gave up were a single to Carl Crawford to open the game and a double to Juan Uribe in the third. Chris Capuano (1-3) allowed six runs — five earned — and six hits in five-plus innings. The left-hander struck out four and walked three.
