Photos
Dodgers 5, Cardinals 1

Entering Saturday, no team had lost an NLDS after taking a 2-0 lead, and the Dodgers kept it that way. Vicente Padilla turned in seven masterful innings, while Andre Ethier's two-run homer and Manny Ramirez's three hits paved the way to a sweep of the Cards. L.A. will play the Rockies-Phillies winner starting Thursday.
