Both teams are failing to mount anything really resembling a rally. Adrian Gonzalez singled with out out, but otherwise is was all quiet.

Joe Kelly has thrown 76 pitches through five innings, and the Cardinals have Lance Lynn up in the bullpen.

The Cardinals got a one-out single from Yadier Molina, but otherwise went quietly. Zack Greinke looked back in control.

Manager Don Mattingly told TV between innings that shortstop Hanley Ramirez was OK after being hit in the ribs by a pitch in the first. He's remained in the game.

Maybe seeing his team rally to tie the game back up relaxed right-hander Joe Kelly.

The Cardinals' starter got is first 1-2-3 inning, quickly retiring the Dodgers in order.

Dodgers 2, Cardinals 2 (end of third):

The Cardinals finally managed their first hit off Zack Greinke, and it came from the least likely source -- right-hander Joe Kelly. It hardly looked like anything was about to change, given Zack Greinke had struck out the first two Cardinals.

Only that was followed by a walk to leadoff hitter Matt Carpenter, and Greinke suddenly was struggling. He got a 3-1 changeup too far over the plate and Carlos Beltran hit a drive off the center-field wall.

Andre Ethier, making his first start since Sept. 13, sprinted over and appeared to have a play on the Beltran drive, but missed it as he lept at the wall. Both runners scored to tie it.

Dodgers 2, Cardinals 0 (middle of third):

It's Juan Uribe, the Dodgers' sudden Superman.

The Dodgers threatened in each of the first two innings and looked in danger of coming away empty again in the third after loading the bases with one out on a Carl Crawford double and a pair of walks.

Yasiel Puig hit a comebacker that Joe Kelly bobbled momentarily and then went to the plate with, but Uribe -- who managed something of a big hit in his last game -- banged the first pitch he saw up the middle for a two-run single.

Dodgers 0, Cardinals 0 (end of second):

Hanley Ramirez came back on the field in the bottom of the second. He was hit by the Joe Kelly pitch in the left ribs, so it's not his throwing side. In the first, though, he did have to go high to snare a Matt Holliday soft liner.

Zack Greinke, meanwhile, continued to look sharp, retiring the Cardinals in order for a second time.
