Dodgers sweep Cards for NLCS return visit
Unemployed in August, Vicente Padilla kept the Los Angeles Dodgers going in October.
The second-chance pitcher shut down Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals with a 5-1 victory Saturday night, putting the Dodgers back in the National League championship series.
"Anytime you win a series it's good," Casey Blake said. "But to sweep the Cardinals, it just doesn't happen. I would have never guessed we would have swept them."
