The Dodgers loaded the bases in the first inning, and Rafael Furcal scored on Blake's sacrifice fly while right fielder Ludwick threw out Andre Ethier at third.
Matt Holliday, who went 1 for 4, fouled a pitch off his leg in the ninth, but stayed at the plate after examination from the training staff. He beat out an infield single before leaving the game for pinch-runner Colby Rasmus.
NOTES: Brad Ausmus started at catcher for the Dodgers because of his previous experience catching knuckleballers. Russell Martin took over in the ninth inning and made a throwing error, Los Angeles' first error in nine games. ... Ankiel's homer was his first since July 30, also against Los Angeles. ... The Cardinals took three of four from the Dodgers in St. Louis last month.
