LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Allen Craig hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2 on Saturday night to win their fourth in a row and sixth in seven games.
It was the seventh straight game that the Cardinals scored six or more runs and the first time in six games that they didn't put up at least 14 hits. They had 13, including five straight in the ninth off Ramon Troncoso, to win their third in a row over Los Angeles.
Kyle McClellan (2-0) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings, struck out two and walked none to earn his second major league victory as a starter in six days.
