For the seventh time in their history, the Cardinals will play in the National League Championship Series after beating the Dodgers 6-2 on Sunday. St. Louis won their best-of-five 3-1. Albert Pujols led the way for the Cardinals with a 2-4 performance with four RBI’s. Pujols broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth inning with a three-run home run and drove in an insurance run with an RBI single in the seventh to make it 6-2. Reggie Sanders also went deep with a solo home run to tie the game at 1-1 in the second inning. On the mound, Jeff Suppan was dominant in seven innings of work, allowing two runs off two hits and three walks. He retired the last 14 batters he faced. Julian Tavarez, Ray King and Jason Isringhausen held the Dodger hitless over the last two innings to preserve the series-clinching win. Reggie Sanders also hit a home run, which tied the game at 1-1 in the second inning. The Cardinals will face either the Braves or Astros in the NLCS—those two teams play game five of their series this afternoon and the winner will travel two St. Louis for Game 1 on Wednesday night.
