Dodgers 4, Cardinals 3

ST. LOUIS -- Adrian Gonzalez ripped a go-ahead RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning as visiting Los Angeles salvaged the finale of a three-game series.

The Dodgers lost a 3-1 lead in the sixth when Peter Bourjos hit an unlikely two-run homer against ace Clayton Kershaw, but J.P. Howell (2-3) stranded runners at the corners to end the bottom of the eighth and A.J. Ellis led off the ninth with a double to center. After two strikeouts and a hit batter, Gonzalez lined an offering from Trevor Rosenthal (1-5) to right and pinch runner Miguel Rojas scored without a play.

Juan Uribe had three hits and an RBI and Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier each recorded two hits and drove in a run for Los Angeles, which scored more than three runs for the first time in eight games. Kershaw allowed three runs and six hits while striking out eight in seven innings, failing to get the win for the first time in nine starts, and Kenley Jansen coasted through the ninth for his 28th save.
