NLCS Game 3: "Rose-Bowl"

GAME 3 - Sportsman Park
Dodgers 7, Cardinals 5
C.Osteen vs Carlton
The series shifted back east to the Gateway city and saw a pair of lefty starters (Osteen & Carlton) struggle mightily.  An RBI double by Jim Lefebvre followed by RBI singles from Johnny Roseboro and Nate Oliver helped Osteen to a 5-1 lead.  St. Louis would answer with 3 runs in the bottom of the sixth as the Baby Bull, Orlando Cepeda, doubled home two, then scored on a fielder's choice.  St. Louis was now in striking distance down by just 1 run.  The Cardinal pen was no more impressive than the man they replaced yielding 2 runs in the top of the 7th to put the Dodgers up by 3.  Johnny Roseboro's 2 run shot was just what the doctor ordered.  The Cards cut the lead to 2 in the 9th when Julian Javier hit a 400 foot shot off of reliever Phil Regan, who hung on to get the save.
Dodgers lead series 2-1
