West lead cut
Photos
Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2
Manny Ramirez shatters his bat on a ninth-inning groundout. (Jon SooHoo/Dodgers)
Clayton Kershaw racked up 97 pitches and five walks, forcing his exit after just 3 2/3 innings. The bullpen kept it close until Andre Ethier and Casey Blake homered in the seventh. But the Cards pushed across a run in the ninth as the Dodgers saw their NL West lead cut to 3 1/2 games.
