The Cardinals have stranded a pair of runners in scoring position through two innings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals are scoreless through two innings in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.
The Cardinals have a pair of hits off of Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw but have yet to break through on the scoreboard. Carlos Beltran hit a one-out double in the first, but Kershaw struck out Matt Holliday and got Yadier Molina to ground out to end the threat.
Shane Robinson singled with two outs in the second and advanced all the way to third on a pair of wild pitches before Kershaw fanned Pete Kozma on a 3-2 fastball to keep the Cards off the board.
Michael Wacha allowed a single to Carl Crawford to start the game but induced a grounder off the bat of Mark Ellis in the next at-bat that resulted in a double play.
