AP, ANAHEIM, California

Cardinals’ starter Adam Wainwright lasted only 4-2/3 innings, giving up six runs, while Kershaw could not maintain his levels late in the contest and allowed St Louis back into the game.

Wainwright hit Yasiel Puig with a pitch leading off the third, triggering a bench-clearing scrum. There was shoving and shouting, but no punches were thrown.

The game ended just shy of four hours when Trevor Rosenthal blew a fastball past Puig with a runner on third.
