Cardinals rout Nationals 12-4, tie NLDS 1-all
Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso also went deep to help the Cardinals build a big lead and compensate for a two-inning start from Jaime Garcia. Craig hit his fifth career postseason homer and scored three times.
Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche hit consecutive homers in the fifth inning for the Nationals, who won't pitch All-Star ace Stephen Strasburg - shut down for the year early last month.
