PITTSBURGH (AP) — Matt Carpenter homered in two straight games entering Sunday. By contrast Cameron Maybin Jersey , Jack Flaherty had allowed at least one home run in each of his previous three starts.Carpenter kept his streak going while Flaherty brought his to an end to lift the St. Louis Cardinals to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.Flaherty (5-6) allowed three hits with seven strikeouts and one walk in six innings. It marked the first time he completed six innings since July 3, when he surrendered four runs in six against the Arizona Diamondbacks.Carpenter hit a solo home run in the fifth inning — his career-high 29th of the season, tying him with Colorado’s Nolan Arenado for the NL lead — and Jedd Gyorko singled to drive in a run later that inning to give the Cardinals a 2-0 lead.“(Leading the National League in home runs) is definitely not something I’ve ever really thought about,” Carpenter said. “It’s just a crazy stretch. There’s not much thought behind it other than I’m just trying to hit the ball hard. I’m really not trying to hit home runs. It just happens.”St. Louis took the final two games of the three-game series to move past Pittsburgh into third place alone in the NL Central.“Just good baseball,” interim Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “It started on the mound. Jack was really, really tough through six innings. Offense competed well. … Some tough at bats, good at bats, and good pitching all the way through.”Bud Norris retired the side in order with two strikeouts in the ninth for his 21st save.Flaherty recovered after giving up four runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings of a 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies in his last start.He got out of trouble twice on Sunday, first when the Pirates had runners on second and third with one out. Corey Dickerson struck out and Starling Marte grounded out to end the third inning. With runners on first and third two innings later, Flaherty forced Jordan Luplow into an inning-ending double play.“That was more where I kind of wanted to be at http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-reggie-jackson-jersey ,” Flaherty said. “It was nice to make adjustments from the last time out, the last few times out, just to try to get ahead. Once it was get ahead, it was stay ahead.”Carpenter’s home run to right with one out in the fifth ended Trevor Williams‘ streak of 21½ innings without allowing a run. That stretched back to July 6, when Williams (9-8) gave up three runs in the third inning of a 17-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.“At that point of the game, you are upset they are up 1-0. That’s what I was worried about,” Williams said. “Knowing how good Flaherty was throwing and how well he was executing his pitches, it was tough. It’s unfortunate that that one blink cost the game today, but that’s kind of how baseball is right now.”After the homer, Williams surrendered consecutive singles to Yadier Molina and Jose Martinez before Gyorko scored Molina with a single to left. Williams allowed those two runs on nine hits with three strikeouts in five innings.Adam Frazier hit a home run off reliever Chasen Shreve to make it 2-1 in the seventh.“Now we go on the road and it’s (against) good teams Andrelton Simmons Jersey ,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “I just love the fact that we are in the hunt. Time to go. We would have loved to won more games here. We did not. Now, it’s time to go put a better package together on the road.”ROSTER MOVESCardinals: RHP Tyson Ross was claimed off waivers from the San Diego Padres and will join St. Louis in Miami. He was 6-9 with a 4.45 ERA and 107 strikeouts in 22 starts for the Padres this season.Pirates: RHP Casey Sadler was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis. RHP Alex McRae, who allowed three runs on five hits in 3 1/3 innings of relief Saturday, was optioned to Indianapolis.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: Dickerson started in left field for the first time since missing eight games with left hamstring discomfort. He hit leadoff and was 0 for 3 with one walk. … INF David Freese did not play because of a right forearm contusion suffered Friday.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Luke Weaver (6-9, 4.75) will attempt to keep his string of impressive performances going when he faces the Miami Marlins on Monday. He has surrendered three runs or fewer in five straight starts since giving up eight in an 11-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves on June 30.Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (4-5, 3.63) will look for a third straight quality start when he takes the mound against the Rockies on Monday. In his last two starts, Musgrove has allowed three combined runs on 10 hits in 14 innings. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Palm trees! Shorts! Sunglasses!While the World Series isn’t quite a trip to the beach, the Boston Red Sox anticipate staying hot in balmy California, and the Los Angeles Dodgers hope a warm welcome will help them reverse a 2-0 deficit.“I think the climate is a little different,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts deadpanned Thursday. “There’s a familiarity http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-yunel-escobar-jersey , obviously, for us. There’s been a lot of talk of outfield depth; we’re very familiar with the ballpark.”Walker Buehler, a 24-year-old rookie right-hander, will be the center of attention when he starts Game 3 for the Dodgers in Friday’s late-afternoon twilight against Rick Porcello. Not so Wednesday, when Buehler flew home from Boston ahead of his team and went unrecognized.He missed a 4-2 win by the Red Sox at Fenway Park that opened a 2-0 Series lead. The Dodgers once again looked off-kilter in the cold of autumn in New England.“We actually took off like 30 minutes before the first pitch and landed about 30 minutes before the last out,” he said.Los Angeles traveled Thursday, deciding to get a full night’s sleep in a Boston hotel rather than flop on flat-bed airplane seats while cruising cross-country through the night. Boston’s players spent the night at home, then jetted west.Porcello went straight from the charter to Dodger Stadium, GQ ready in a dark suit, dress shirt and violet necktie.“I actually have it buttoned up because I have a stain on my white shirt Martin Maldonado Jersey ,” he said. “I’ve been walking around Dodger Stadium with this thing snug, so nobody could see that. It’s not as good as it looks right now. I’m hiding everything.”Boston burst ahead in the Series at its 106-year-old ballpark, defined by the 37-foot Green Monster in left, the triangle in center, the Pesky Pole in right and the Citgo sign beyond. The Red Sox thrived in the chilly, damp nights. The Dodgers bundled up and tried to endure.Now Los Angeles is back in its own elements. The yellow, light orange, turquoise and sky blue seats looked like 55,000 or so dominoes lined up, the San Gabriel Mountains shimmering beyond the hexagonal video boards and the parking lots. While there were no formal workouts by either team http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-j.-c.-ramirez-jersey , a few Dodgers played catch in left field.“You get on the road and things can be a little quirky,” Buehler said. “I would think that most people would be better at their home ballpark and to have their home crowd behind them. And we expect them to be out and loud tomorrow.”With the shift to the National League, the designated hitter vanishes. Boston manager Alex Cora must decide whether to insert J.D. Martinez into an outfield corner to keep the major league RBI leader in the batting order. He ruled out shifting Mookie Betts from right field to second base to create room.Martinez is playing with a sore right ankle after slipping while rounding second base in the opener.“Actually he felt better today walking around,” Cora said. “He got treatment on the way here. He’s going to get treatment tomorrow. He’ll get treatment tomorrow morning. In the afternoon we’ll make a decision.”After starting the first all right-handed-hitting lineup (with no switch-hitters) in Series history against lefties Chris Sale and David Price, Roberts will revert to a more orthodox assortment against Porcello. Left-handed-hitting Joc Pederson will lead off instead of Brian Dozier, and fellow lefties Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy could join him along with switch-hitting catcher Yasmani Grandal. The benched quartet included the Dodgers’ top four home-run hitters.Roberts was a member of the 2004 Red Sox, who became the first team to overcome a 3-0 postseason deficit when they beat the New York Yankees in the AL Championship Series. Boston then swept St. Louis for its first title since 1918. Roberts remembered the message of then-Red Sox manager Terry Francona: win tonight.“You can’t win four games in one night,” Roberts said. “So just the focus-on-one-game-at-a-time mentality. I know it’s easier said than done.”
