ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Yasmani Grandal’s three-run homer capped a four-run sixth inning off Michael Wacha and the Los Angeles Dodgers prevailed for a rain-soaked 5-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.

Carlos Frias (4-2) allowed an unearned run and five hits in seven innings, an impressive bounce back after surrendering a career-worst 10 runs his last time out. Frias bunted for his first career hit in the seventh.

Howie Kendrick’s RBI single tied it at 1 two at-bats before Grandal, activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list earlier Saturday, hammered a 3-1 pitch an estimated 435 feet to left-center.

The Dodgers, held hitless for the first 5 1-3 innings, ended a drought of 42 consecutive scoreless innings on the road, including a 3-0 loss in the series opener Friday.

Wacha (7-1) gave up four runs and three hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Cardinals, whose five-game winning streak ended.
