LOS ANGELES (AP) 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.
Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis also went deep for the Dodgers, who rediscovered their power stroke just in time to save their season. They held in the ninth, when St. Louis scored twice off closer Kenley Jansen before he struck out pinch-hitter Adron Chambers with two on to end it.
The best-of-seven series shifts back to St. Louis for Game 6 on Friday night, when ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start for the Dodgers against rookie Michael Wacha.
When those two squared off in Game 2, the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run.

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...

It makes me think these people have never watched sports before...
