Get blanked, 7-0, and manage only three hits like the Dodgers did on Friday night, and maybe you think Manager Don Mattingly's team was completely devoid of his desired true grit. Not so. It was there in plain sight in the sixth inning when catcher A.J. Ellis took a hard hit from Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay in a bruising home-plate collision. Ellis lay flat on his back for several scary minutes, but after counting body parts with team trainers, he stood up and remained in the game.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis will be offering his analysis throughout the World Series. Ellis, 32, recently completed his second full season as a starter for the Dodgers by batting .333 in a National League division series against the Atlanta Braves and .316 in the NL Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Ellis is familiar with the Boston Red Sox, a team the Dodgers faced during the regular season. The final play of the game came in an inning that will be analyzed and second-guessed for what Red Sox Manager John Farrell should have done.

Two similar teams, both playing .500 baseball for months, both hanging around a playoff spot, meeting and splitting a four-game series. There wasn't much difference between the Dodgers and Cardinals before they met this weekend, and there wasn't much difference after St. Louis exited Sunday with a 5-2 victory in 12 innings. The Cardinals left Los Angeles as they came, one game ahead of the Dodgers for the National League's second and final wild-card berth, nothing really decided with 15 games left to play.

Columnists and reporters from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch will be sharing their views with Los Angeles Times readers during the National League Championship Series. By getting all tangled up in (Dodger) blue in Game 3, the Cardinals fumbled away the opportunity to put the champagne on ice in advance of Game 4. There will be no chance of a St. Louis celebration Tuesday, no chance of the Cardinals sweeping the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.

ST. LOUIS -- When the St. Louis Cardinals took the field for Game 7 of last year's World Series, they had Albert Pujols at first base, Ryan Theriot at second, Rafael Furcal at shortstop, Skip Schumaker in center field and Lance Berkman in right field. None of those five position players were in the lineup for St. Louis in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series, which the Cardinals lead, three games to two, after a 5-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Pujols, as you might have heard, left for the Los Angeles Angels.

The St. Louis Cardinals advanced to the NLCS by defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates in five games. Game 1, at St. Louis 9, Pittsburgh 1: It looked like the series was going to be a mismatch when the Cardinals scored seven runs in the third inning, including a three-run homer by Carlos Beltran. With Adam Wainwright on the mound, seven runs was more than the Cardinals would need. Player of the game: Jon Jay. Game 2, Pittsburgh 7, at St. Louis 1: The Pirates beat up Cardinals starter Lance Lynn and cruised behind the six-inning, two-hit pitching of Gerrit Cole.

ST. LOUIS -- The story is that Matt Holliday played well on Thursday. Perhaps the better story is that he played at all. After he led the St. Louis Cardinals to the victory that moved them to within one win of a World Series encore, Holliday said that his mother had undergone surgery for colon cancer Thursday morning, and that she was resting comfortably. Little wonder, then, that Holliday had long gotten past the slide, the one in which he dislodged and injured Marco Scutaro, the one that branded him the bad guy every time ESPN showed another of its endless replays.

ST. LOUIS - "It was going to end at some point," Clayton Kershaw said. "Unfortunately, it had to happen tonight. " The Dodgers' ace was referring to the team's streak of 15 consecutive wins on the road, the longest in franchise history and tied for the third-longest in big league history. The St. Louis Cardinals ended the streak Tuesday night with a 5-1 victory at Busch Stadium, and Kershaw took the loss despite pitching relatively well. BOX SCORE: Cardinals 5, Dodgers 1 It was only the eighth loss in the last 40 games for the first-place Dodgers.

Jon Jay was the last Cardinals player out of the shower Monday, which is understandable because there were a lot of things he needed to wash away. Like the memories of Mark Ellis' fourth-inning fly ball that he let drop for a double, setting up a two-run Dodgers rally. Or the fifth-inning drive by A.J. Ellis that went off his glove for a triple. "It's something that I'm probably going to think about a little bit," Jay said softly. His teammates, too. Because Jay's two miscues and mental lapses by right fielder Carlos Beltran and second baseman Kolten Wong led to all the runs in the Dodgers' 3-0 victory in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, swinging the momentum back to the Dodgers in the best-of-seven matchup.
