Cardinals stuns Nats

WASHINGTON (AP) - Pete Kozma's two-out, two-run single to right in the top of the ninth inning gave St. Louis the lead for the first time and the Cardinals stunned Washington 9-7 to win the NLDS. Kosma's hit followed a game-tying, two-out, two-run single by Daniel Descalso, who also homered in the eighth inning to help the Cardinals overcome an early six-run deficit. 

     Washington was an out away from advancing when closer Drew Storen walked Yadier Molina and David Freise to load the bases for Descalso, who's sharp ground kicked off shortstop Ian Desmond's glove and into center field.  

     The Nationals scored three times before St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright recorded an out.  Jason Werth led off with a double, Bryce Harper followed with a triple and Ryan Zimmerman added a homer. 

     Harper and Michael Morse also went deep in the third inning to help build a 6-0 lead and end Wainwright's outing after just 2 1-3 innings.  

     But  St. Louis started to chip away on Matt Holliday's rbi single in the fourth and pulled within a run on Descalso's homer. 

     Kurt Suzuki gave Washington some insurance in the bottom of the inning with an rbi single, his third hit of the game.  But the Cardinals wouldn't be denied.

     The Cardinals will travel to San Francisco to open up the NLCS against the Giants Sunday.
