The Los Angeles Dodgers' 3-0 dead didn't last for long. Just after St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn gave up a trio of runs to the Dodgers in the bottom of the second, the Cardinals came back in the top of third with four runs of their own.
The inning started with Tyler Greene reaching second base on a bunt single and an error by Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis. Eighth batter Shane Robinson then struck out but managed to advanced to first after a wild pitch by L.A. starter Ted Lilly. After a Lynn sacrifice, Rafael Furcal hit a sacrifice fly to plate Greene and Matt Carpenter singled to score Robinson.
Matt Holliday delivered the big blow one batter later with a two run homer to put St. Louis up 4-3, but the Dodgers have tied the game in the bottom of the third.
