The Cardinals held it together without Albert Pujols, going 7-7 and scoring 4.2 runs per game.

MILWAUKEE - Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis makes his off-season home in the Milwaukee area, but at a key moment in the 10th inning Wednesday night, Ellis looked as though he'd rather have been anywhere else. With the Dodgers and Brewers tied at 2-2, Milwaukee's Nyjer Morgan broke for second base, Ellis' errant throw flew into center field, Morgan moved to third base and a dejected Ellis stood at home plate with his right hand on his side. Ellis' miscue opened the door for Morgan to score on Ryan Braun's sacrifice fly that gave the Brewers their second walk-off run against the Dodgers in as many nights and a 3-2 victory at Miller Park.

You pitch for the Dodgers and you want to win a game? Easy. Don't give up any runs. Hiroki Kuroda has figured out that much. Backed by a two-run home run by Matt Kemp and a run-scoring double by Jerry Sands, Kuroda pitched 72/3 innings Tuesday night to lift the Dodgers to a 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that ended their losing streak at three games. "The team is a little down right now," Kuroda said. "Somebody has to change something. The rotatino has been pitching well.

Don't adjust anything, this is a recording. The Dodgers again got a respectable outing from their starting pitcher Wednesday, and again barely gave him any run support. So the Dodgers lost. Again. This time the pitcher was Nathan Eovaldi, the 21-year-old making his third big league start, and except for a couple of jams he pitched well in holding the first-place Milwaukee Brewers to two runs in six innings. But Brewers ace and former Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke (12-4)

Say this for the Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers, they are making their games interesting. Alas, for the Dodgers, they've been a tad more interesting for the Brewers. For the second time in as many nights, the Brewers won a taunt game with their final at-bat, cooling off the Dodgers with a second consecutive loss. This time Ryan Braun's bases-loaded fly to shallow center field in the 10th inning was enough to drive in pinch-runner Nyjer Morgan with the winning run in Milwaukee's 3-2 victory Wednesday.
