St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright wasn’t thrilled following Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, and it wasn’t just because he took the loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Wainwright didn’t pitch poorly by any stretch of the imagination — he gave up just two runs over seven innings — but the Cardinals couldn’t push any runs of their own across. So Wainwright took the loss, and the Dodgers are now back in the series having lost the first two games in St. Louis.
So Wainwright’s frustation is understandable, but he took issue with more than the way he pitched. The Cardinals pitcher was also a little upset by the way Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez acted.
After Gonzalez hit an RBI double in the fourth inning, he stood on second base and made some celebratory gestures. It was a big hit in a big spot for a player who doesn’t have a ton of playoff experience let alone playoff success, and Gonzalez celebrated as such. Two batters later, Gonzalez scored on Yas...

Adam Wainwright cleared up a misunderstanding regarding his issues with Adrian Gonzalez’s “Mickey Mouse” behavior during Game 3 on Monday night, explaining that he wasn’t annoyed with a celebration, but with Gonzalez heckling him. LBS and many other outlets incorrectly believed Wainwright was annoyed with the way Gonzalez celebrated his RBI double to put the […]
Adam Wainwright didn’t bring his “A” game to the mound or the batter’s box on Monday night.
During his at-bat in the sixth inning of Game 3 of the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Cardinals’ starting pitcher accidentally tossed his bat into the cameramen section after fouling off a pitch. Wainwright would eventually ground out to third for the first out of the...
Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig is exciting to watch. The young man has a cannon of an arm and he is dangerous every time he steps up to the plate. Need a tide turning kind of play? This is the guy that will provide it more often than not for the Dodgers.
The only knock on him is his immaturity; that's the reason the club sent him to the minors to start the...
Down two games to the Cardinals, Los Angeles didn’t have much to be cocky about in Game 3 of the NLCS, but don’t tell that to Yasiel Puig.
The Dodgers star outfielder struggled mightily in the first two games of the series, going 0-for-10 with six strikeouts against St. Louis. The rest of the Dodgers weren’t doing much better, though, hitting just .184 in the series and only...
Following the Dodgers win in Game 3 of the NLCS a couple of the Cardinals commented on how they did not care for the antics of Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez. Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright went as far as to refer to Gonzalez's antics as being 'Mickey Mouse' like.
When told about it Gonzalez didn't really care--and he showed it by throwing up the popular...
Dodgers Yasiel Puig hadn’t had a hit in the NLCS until Monday night. When he finally got off against the St. Louis Cardinals, Puig clearly thought this one was going over the fence… not so much but it was enough for an RBI triple.

We told you it would be so; we told you that the Dodgers would beat Adam Wainwright in the Cardinals in game three of the NLCS. And that’s exactly what happened.
The Dodgers snapped an ugly scoreless streak by gathering a single by Adrian Gonzalez, and a huge triple from Yasiel Puig with two outs. Puig pimped it as if the ball was out...

Back in the comfort of their own ballpark, the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.
The win moves the series to 2-1 in favor of the Cardinals with the Dodgers looking for the tie on Tuesday...
Adrian Gonzalez homered twice and Zack Greinke gave the Los
Angeles Dodgers the clutch performance they needed in a 6-4 victory
over the Cardinals on Wednesday that trimmed St. Louis' lead to 3-2
in the NL championship series.
It was do or die for the Dodgers in Game 5 of the NLCS after falling behind 3-1 after Tuesday night's loss. Rather than see the season come to an end the team opted 'to do' instead of die beating the Cardinals 6-4 to close the series gap to 3-2.

With their backs firmly against the wall the Los Angeles Dodgers responded with a, 6-4, victory against the St. Louis Cardinals in game five of the National League Playoff Series. Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was the star of the show going 3 for 4 with two home runs, three runs scored and two RBIs.

In the brief interludes between arguing whether the Cardinals do indeed have “the best fans in baseball” and if they should or should not be offended by Yasiel Puig, a popular discussion topic on social media has centered on St. Louis’ so-called “Cardinals Devil Magic,” i.e., the sense that everything always seems to go the Cardinals’ way in October.
Setting aside the...
The first two games of the National League Championship Series didn’t go according to plan if you’re a Los Angeles Dodgers fan. Sending not only your two best pitchers, but two of the best in the game, one of whom drew the start opposite Joe Kelly, you would expect that at the very least you are heading home all tied up.
Well things don’t always go according to plan. Greinke...
I have no voice... and very few words... except:
Go Blue! These Boys showed up to play tonight!
Ryu! He got the best of Waino and the Cards pitching a 3 hit shutout. He was mixing it up out there throw a 94 MPH fastball with a 81 MPH change to follow. If we did not have such a strong pen with B. Weezy and Jansen, he could have gone the distance - but why waste...
