Pitching and home-field advantage continued to rule the National League Championship Series as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the visiting St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 last night.
The Cardinals won the first two games of the series at Busch Stadium. Game 4 is coming up tonight at 8 Eastern at Dodger Stadium.
Hyun-Jin Ryu carried the Dodgers to victory, pitching seven shutout innings while surrendering only three hits.
Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright matched Ryu for three innings, but the Dodgers scored twice on him in the fourth. Adrian Gonzalez doubled to score Mark Ellis, putting the Dodgers on the board.
Yasiel Puig came to the plate and hit what he thought was a home run, as he raised his arms and watched the ball fly. However, it didn’t clear the fence. Puig managed to hustle around the bases with an RBI triple to score Gonzalez.
The Dodgers scored their final run in the eighth inning when Hanley Ramirez singled to score Carl Crawford.
Lance Lynn will start for the Cardinals against the Dodgers’ Ricky Nolasco.
