Cardinals Win Best-of-Seven Series 4-2


Best-Of-Seven series to advance to the World Series.

The Dodgers won their 2013 season series against the Cardinals 4-3. These two teams have met on three prior occasions in post-season history with the Cardinals winning two of three meetings: The 1985 NLCS (4-2 STL), the 2004 NLDS (3-1 STL) and the 2009 NLDS (3-0 LA).

The Cardinals also beat the then-Brooklyn Dodgers in a two-game tiebreaker series to win the 1946 NL Pennant.

The Dodgers have not advanced to the World Series since they won the title in 1988.

The Los Angeles Dodgers advanced to the NLCS with a 3-1 series victory over the Atlanta Braves.

Hanley Ramirez led the team in the Division Series with a .500 average (8-16), six of which were extra base hits including: four doubles, one triple and one home run.

Their biggest power threat in the DS was Carl Crawford who hit three home runs and drove in five runs during the four game series.

3B Juan Uribe also turned in a multi-homer series including a go-ahead blast in the eighth inning of Game 4 and added four RBIs.

Rookie sensation Yasiel Puig had a very strong performance turning in a .471 avg (8-17) and driving in two runs.

Ace Clayton Kershaw started two of the four games during the Division Series for the Dodgers and posted a 1-0 record and a stellar 0.69 ERA.

Closer Kenley Jansen converted his only save opportunity.

The St. Louis Cardinals advanced to the NLCS with a 3-2 series victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This is the Cardinals third straight trip to the Championship Series, winning in 2011 on their way to the franchise's latest World Series Title.

Adam Wainwright led them in the Division Series posting a 2-0 record with a 1.13 ERA and 15 strikeouts in two starts. He also threw a complete game in the deciding fifth game of the series.

As he always is, Carlos Beltran has once again been the go to guy in the playoffs with two homers and six RBIs in the five game series.

Both Matt Adams and Matt Holliday had six hits against the Pirates.

Pete Kozma played in four of the five games and had a team high .400 avg. (4-10).
