National League Game Summary - St. Louis at Los Angeles



(Sunday, May 26th)

Final Score: St. Louis 5, Los Angeles 3

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Pete Kozma went 4-for-4 with three doubles and three RBI to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the finale of a three-game set at Dodger Stadium.

Matt Carpenter had two hits and an RBI and Matt Adams added a pinch-hit RBI single for the Cardinals, winners in four of their last five.

Seth Maness (4-1) earned the win after tossing one scoreless frame in relief, and Edward Mujica hurled a perfect ninth to pick up his 14th save of the season.

Starter Shelby Miller gave up three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. It was Miller's shortest outing since going 5 1/3 frames on April 6.

Adrian Gonzalez, who finished a triple shy of the cycle on Saturday, went 2- for-4 with a homer and three RBI for the Dodgers, losers in six of their last nine.

Clayton Kershaw (5-3) was tagged for four runs on seven hits over seven frames.

Gonzalez got the Dodgers on the board in the first inning with a two-run homer. Carl Crawford drew a leadoff walk, and after Mark Ellis flied out, Gonzalez crushed a fastball into the seats in right-center field.

The Cardinals, though, scored three runs in the second to take the lead. With the bags full, Kozma ripped a double into the left field corner to clear the bases.

Gonzalez continued to deliver for the Dodgers in the fifth, dropping a single into center field to score Kershaw to tie the game. It was his sixth RBI of the series.

Carpenter's RBI single in the seventh gave the Cardinals a 4-3 lead. Kozma lifted a fly ball to short center field. Dee Gordon dove for the ball, but couldn't finish off the fantastic effort, and Kozma scurried to second base. Two-batters later, Carpenter roped a line drive off Gonzalez's glove and into right field to score Kozma.

Adams singled home Kozma in the ninth to give St. Louis the decisive 5-3 advantage.

Game Notes

St. Louis recalled rookie pitcher Michael Blazek from Double-A Springfield on Sunday after placing left- handed starter John Gast on the 15-day disabled list ... St. Louis was just 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position ... Crawford went 3-for-4 with two doubles ... Kershaw snapped a streak of five starts where he held opposing hitters to one or fewer earned runs.
