Mark Ellis at the plate in the 10th to end the inning. reliever in the game, on a 3 1 pitch and he ripped it into the right field corner.
He started off by striking out Carl Crawford on three pitches then ran into trouble as Ellis singled and then he drilled Nike Air Vapormax Asphalt Ramirez in the ribs on a 1 2 pitch.
The Cards had an opportunity to end it in the ninth when they had two out and two on, courtesy of two Brian Wilson walks. Wilson ran the count to 3 2 against Jay and, with the crowd on its feet and screaming wildly, the best Jay could do was hit a routine fly to centre to send the game into extra innings,
The Cards walked Hanley Ramirez intentionally to get to Michael Young.
Kelly started the game looking a little anxious, a little nervous.
Just for fun, Young also grounded into a double play to end the 12th. What a model of consistency.
The right hander had just one hiccup in the game, that coming in the third inning and it cost him a couple of runs.
Beltran drove in all three runs for the Adidas Prophere Camouflage
Other than that speed bump, he was aces.
Young lofted a ball to shallow right, where Beltran camped under it and with Ellis tagging and attempting to score, he fired a one hop strike to Yadier Molina and Ellis was a dead duck, tagged out for the double play and the end of the Nike Uptempo Ioffer
What a night for red. anthem and in the 13th inning Carlos Beltran provided the walkoff win when he singled home pinch hitter Daniel Descalso from second to enable the St. Louis Cardinals to post a 3 2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opener of the best of seven NLCS.
Crawford opened the inning with a double into the left field corner and after moving to third on a ground out, he watched as Kelly walked Ramirez and Gonzalez to load them up.

The Dodgers were the favorites to take Game 1 due to the pitching matchups.
The Cardinals received all they could hope for from Joe Kelly, who had a shaky opening three innings before settling down.
Perhaps the moment of pitching in Game 1 of the NLCS got to him.
With Adrian Gonzalez at the plate, Kelly zipped a wild pitch in the dirt as both runners advanced. On a 3 2 pitch, he threw a changeup that ran off the plate but Gonzalez chased it for the strikeout.
On the night, he allowed two runs on four hits, walked one and struck out 10. He deserved better than the ND.
In extras, both teams had chances.

In the Dodgers half of the 10th, Cardinals centre fielder Jon Jay looked to have earned the goat horns by turning what should have been a line drive single by Ellis into a one out triple when the ball skipped by him and to the wall.
Game 2 will go Saturday afternoon and feature the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw against outstanding rookie Cardinal right hander Michael Wacha.
