It was a four-hour monster in which the teams combined to leave 30 men on base, but in the end the Dodgers opened the post-season with a win over the Cardinals and their ace pitcher. Matt Kemp homered in the first inning to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. Starter Randy Wolf left in the 4th after 82 pitches, then five relief pitchers held onto the lead. They go right back at it in a 3 p.m. game on Thursday.
Antonio watch: Mayor Villaraigosa wore his Dodger jacket in the McCourts' field box for most of the game, alternating seatmates.
