|Cards Rally from Deficit to Beat Dodgers
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Holliday drove in the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Sunday and finish a four-game sweep.
Allen Craig filled in for Albert Pujols and performed just like the Cardinals' All-Star first baseman, driving in three runs in the final two innings on his 26th birthday.
Craig put the Cardinals on the board with a two-run double off reliever Justin Miller in the eighth inning that made it 4-2, and he singled to center off Jonathan Broxton (3-1) with two outs in the ninth inning to knot the game at 4-4.
Holliday followed with an RBI single over Andre Ethier's head in right field.
Broxton entered the game with one out in the eighth inning and threw 44 pitches while blowing his third save in 22 chances. Ryan Franklin (4-1) pitched the ninth for the win.
