Knocks from Beltran, Holliday tie game at 2-2

The Dodgers jumped out to the 2-0 lead in the second, but the Cardinals have answered right back with two of their own in the third.

Zack Greinke easily retired his pitching counterpart Joe Kelly to start the inning, but then surrendered four straight hits. After a single from Matt Carpenter, postseason demigod Carlos Beltran got St. Louis on the board with an RBI triple off the wall in center:

This is the point where Dodgers fans gripe about having Ethier -- who rates as really bad defensively in right field when healthy -- playing center field injured. Matt Holliday followed Beltran's three-bagger with an extra-base hit of his own, hitting a laser off the left-center wall for a game-tying double.

Greinke eventually got out of the jam with his second double play of the day.
