Cardinals rally to stun Dodgers


LOS ANGELES: St. Louis hammered Los Angeles star pitcher Clayton Kershaw on Friday (Saturday in Manila), rallying for a 10-9 triumph over the Dodgers in the first game of their Major League Baseball playoff series. Matt Carpenter’s four runs-batted-in included a three-run double in an eight-run seventh inning for the Cardinals, who then held on for the victory to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five National League Division Series. Across the country in Washington, the San Francisco Giants edged the Nationals 3-2 to open their NL Division Series. The winners of the two series will meet for the National League title and a World Series berth.
