LOS ANGELES — The Cardinals will go to the World Series if they win today in Los Angeles.
St. Louis got home runs from Matt Holliday and pinch-hitter Shane Robinson — the first of the NL championship series — and beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 Tuesday night for a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven playoff.
The play again this afternoon at 4 p.m. in Los Angeles.
