Cardinals Out of Playoffs
POSTED 8:11pm, UPDATED 8:35pm 10/11/09 ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Vicente Padilla shut down Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals, putting the Los Angeles Dodgers back in the National League championship series with a 5-1 victory on Saturday night.

Andre Ethier missed the cycle by a single, Manny Ramirez had three hits and two RBIs and the Dodgers didn't need help from another Cardinals fielding blunder to sweep their division series opponent for a second straight season.

Pujols and Matt Holliday were a combined 2 for 8 with a late RBI for the Cardinals, who never recharged after being the first National League team to clinch a division title.
