Cardinals vs. Dodgers score update, NLCS Game 3: Los Angeles still up, 2-0, through 6 innings

Jeff Gross

Dodgers rookie Hyun-jin Ryu is outdueling Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright in Los Angeles on Monday.

The Los Angeles Dodgers maintain a 2-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals after six innings in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Monday.

Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu continues to stifle the Cardinals' bats, allowing two hits through six scoreless innings. He's struck out three and walked one.

Ryu did not allow a hit until David Freese singled to lead off the fifth inning. Freese injured his ankle during the at-bat and was lifted from the game in the middle of the inning in favor of Daniel Descalso.

Adrian Gonzalez plated the Dodgers' first run with a fourth-inning double and Yasiel Puig followed with an RBI triple. Four of the Dodgers' five hits against Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright have gone for extra bases.

Wainwright has allowed two runs through six innings and has racked up five strikeouts.
