ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The Cardinals manager Mike Matheny joked that he told Carlos Beltran to bunt in the 8th. It was a joke and a reference to what happened in Monday night’s loss to the Dodgers. This time Beltran hit a home run and the Cardinals beat Los Angeles 5-1 to end the Dodgers 15 game road winning streak. Matt Adams also homered. Joe Kelly outdueled the Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to get the win. Kelly continues to shine as a member of the rotation as he worked 5 1/3 inning giving up just one run. The Pirates also won so the Cardinals stay two games behind Pittsburgh in the Central Division.
