The Dodgers stayed alive in the NLCS by beating the Cardinals 6-4 in Game 5 of the NLCS at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers hit four home runs and that tied a team postseason record and now the series has moved back to St. Louis for Game 6 and potentially Game 7.

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is on the mound tonight and the Dodgers couldn’t have asked for a better pitcher to have on the mound down 3-2 in the series and looking for a Game 7. Kershaw has been incredible in the postseason with a 1-1 record and a 0.47 ERA. In his first start in Game 2, he went six innings and only allowed two hits and one unearned run. Tonight, Kershaw was looking for redemption and give his team an opportunity to get to the World Series.

The Cardinals once again countered with Michael Wacha and the right handed rookie has been impressive as well in his first two postseason starts and has a 0.64 ERA.  A rookie from Texas A&M, he hasn’t shown any signs of being a rookie and was looking to send the Cardinals to the World Series for the second time in three years.

Here are the tweets of the night.
