Automated InsightsOctober 12, 2013

Carlos Beltran smacked a game-winning single in the 13th and Lance Lynn allowed one hit in two innings of relief as St. Louis outdueled Los Angeles, 3-2. Los Angeles stranded 11 runners.

The Dodgers opened the scoring in the top of the third when Juan Uribe hit a single off starter Joe Kelly, driving in Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez.

The loss went to Chris Withrow (0-1), who went 1 1/3 innings and allowed one run on one hit with one strikeout and one walk. Beltran led the way in the batter's box for the Cardinals, going 2 for 6 with a double and three RBIs. Uribe was 2 for 6 with two RBIs in the loss.

The Cardinals now have a 1-0 lead in the NLCS. Saturday, the Cardinals will face the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS at Busch Stadium at 3:07 PM CDT.
