NLCS Game 1, Dodgers vs. Cardinals score update: Los Angeles, St. Louis still in 2-2 tie

Elsa

Bunting and good defense killed the only real attempt at a rally we've seen in quite a while.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals are still locked in a 2-2 tie after eight innings in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Friday.

Neither team has done much of anything on offense since the third inning, during which all four of the game's runs were scored. The latest attempt at a threat was put together by the Cardinals in the seventh inning, when Yadier Molina led off with a single. However, Molina was thrown out at second while trying to advance on Jon Jay's bunt, and Jay was later gunned down at first on the back-half of a double play turned by Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig.

Zack Greinke was still on the mound through the eighth inning, and he's tallied 10 strikeouts while surrendering only four hits and a walk. Cardinals starter Joe Kelly exited after six innings of six-hit ball. He walked two and struck out five.
