Jhonny Peralta hits his ninth home run of the season to start the comeback in the sixth inning to cut the Dodgers lead to 2-1. In the eighth, Matt Holliday’s run scoring double tied the game at 2-2. Peralta’s single scored pinch runner Peter Bourjos to give the Cards a 3-2 lead. Mark Reynolds completed the comeback with an RBI double to end the scoring at 4-2.
Kevin Siegrist was the winning pitcher in relief of Lance Lynn. Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 19th save. The Cardinals ended up winning three of the four games with the Dodgers this weekend. Their road trip continues on Monday in Colorado against the Rockies.
