Taylor’s clutch hit caps 14-pitch at-bat, Dodgers deck Cards

Chris Taylor drove in three runs with a tiebreaking double that capped a 14-pitch at-bat in the sixth inning, rallying the Los Angeles Dodgers past the St. Louis Cardinals 9-4 to snap a three-game skid.

Taylor fouled off nine pitches — four in a row twice — by Genesis Cabrera before delivering the two-out, bases-loaded double for a 6-3 lead. Two batters earlier, Cabrera issued a bases-loaded walk to Will Smith that tied the game. Taylor also homered in the second and doubled in the eighth. He went 3 for 4 with four RBIs. Trevor Bauer earned the victory, allowing four runs — three earned — and five hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Justin Williams, Dylan Carlson and Tyler O’Neill all homered for the Cardinals in the game.
