|Disappointing Cardinals Lay Egg in Los Angeles; Fall One Game Behind Cincinnati in NL Central
|LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Manny Ramirez hit a two-run homer and Blake DeWitt also had two RBIs to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday night, completing a three-game sweep.
James Loney tied a career high with four hits, helping Los Angeles extend St. Louis' losing streak to a season-worst four games and dropping the Cardinals one game behind first-place Cincinnati in the NL Central.
The Dodgers' 23rd win in 30 games increased their NL West lead to one game over the San Diego Padres, who were rained out in New York.
