The St. Louis Cardinals are onto the National League Championship Series for the fourth straight season. Matt Adams clubbed a go-ahead, three-run homer off Clayton Kershaw in the seventh inning to lift the Cards to a 3-2 win over the Dodgers in Game Four of their NLDS at Busch Stadium. St. Louis wins the best-of-five series three-games-to-one.
Shelby Miller pitched five-and-two-thirds innings of two-run ball in a no-decision. Marco Gonzalez got the win with a scoreless inning of relief and Trevor Rosenthal nailed it down in the ninth for his third save of the series. Kershaw struck out nine while allowing just four hits in six-plus innings to take the loss, his second of the series. Los Angeles took a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning on Matt Kemp's double-play grounder and Juan Uribe's RBI single. The Cardinals will play the San Francisco Giants in the NLCS starting Saturday.
