Highlights From Game 5 Of The NLCS Between The Cardinals And Dodgers
Pushed to the brink of elimination, the Dodgers had a chance to send the NLCS back to Busch Stadium with Zack Greinke on the mound against Cardinals starter Joe Kelly.
Greinke and Kelly both started Game 1, but neither factored into the decision as the Cardinals won in 13-innings after Carlos Beltran drove in the winning run. Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier were back in the lineup after Ramirez was pulled in favor of Nick Punto in the seventh inning last night.
In his first at-bat in Game 1, Ramirez was hit by a Kelly fastball that has change the course of the NLCS as Hanley has been compromised and isn’t the same hitter he was during the regular season and NLDS.
However, with an all hands on deck approach, the Dodgers were looking to push the Cardinals to a Game 6 with Clayton Kershaw slated to pitch on Friday.
