The Dodgers have drawn even in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Cardinals.
After Matt Carpenter hit a solo homer in the third inning to give St. Louis an early 1-0 lead, Hanley Ramirez doubled home Yasiel Puig in the top of the sixth to tie things up.
Puig had struck out in seven straight plate appearances — one shy of tying the postseason record — before he tripled into the right field corner to begin the sixth. John Lackey responded by getting Adrian Gonzalez to fly out to shallow left field and then struck out Matt Kemp swinging, but Ramirez doubled to right field to get Puig home. The Dodgers were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position tonight before Ramirez’s hit.
Lackey struck out Carl Crawford swinging to avoid any further damage, but it’s a 1-1 game as we go into the bottom of the sixth at Busch Stadium.
