St. Louis 4, Dodgers 2

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - — Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: The Dodgers were lead­ing, 2-1, un­til a col­lapse in the eighth in­ning. Adam Lib­er­a­tore walked the lead­off hit­ter, Kolten Wong. Lib­er­a­tore was re­placed by Juan Ni­ca­sio, who served up a triple to Matt Hol­l­i­day. Hol­l­i­day’s triple went into the right-field cor­ner, where it rolled un­der the glove of Yasiel Puig. Puig’s mis­play al­lowed Wong to score and Hol­l­i­day to reach third base. Hol­l­i­day scored on a sin­gle by Jhonny Per­alta, who scored the Car­di­nals’ third run of the in­ning on a dou­ble by Matt Reynolds.

ON THE MOUND: Zack Greinke was in line for his sixth victory when he de­parted from the game. He limited the Car­di­nals to one run and six hits over 62⁄ innings. The run

3 charged to Greinke came on a sixth-in­ning solo home run by Per­alta.

AT THE PLATE: Justin Turner bat­ted cleanup with Howie Ken­drick out of the start­ing lineup for the fourth con­sec­u­tive game. Turner dou­bled in Puig from first base in the first in­ning to move the Dodgers in front, 1-0. Turner dou­bled the lead to 2-0 in the third in­ning by driv­ing in Greinke with a sin­gle to cen­ter field. The Dodgers forced Car­di­nals starter Lance Lynn out of the game af­ter only five innings, but fin­ished the con­test with only seven hits.

EX­TRA BASES: Bran­don League started a mi­nor league re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion as­sign­ment by pitch­ing an in­ning in Lan­caster for Class-A Ran­cho Cu­ca­monga. League was charged with a hit and an un­earned run. The game was the first at any level this sea­son for League, who has been side­lined by shoul­der prob­lems.

UP NEXT: Mike Bolsinger (3-1, 1.98 ERA) will face the Ari­zona Di­a­mond­backs’ Rubby De La Rosa (4-2, 5.09) at Dodger Sta­dium on Mon­day at 7 p.m. TV: Sport­sNet LA; Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
