Ludwick saves day

Cardinals 6, Dodgers 4
The ninth-inning rally snatched away Chris Carpenter's first win since '06. (Tom Gannam/AP)
Ryan Ludwick hit an 11th-inning walk-off two-run homer after the Cardinals' bullpen could not hold a four-run lead in the ninth vs. the Dodgers. Chris Carpenter threw five innings of three-hit shutout ball, but departed after two rain delays for a no-decision.
