Cardinals even NLDS with Game 2 victory over Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - John Jay knocked Carlos Ruiz backward with a

hard forearm shiver, then the St. Louis Cardinals flipped this

series around.

Albert Pujols hit a go-ahead single in the seventh inning after

Cliff Lee blew a four-run lead, and the Cardinals rallied past the

Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 Sunday night to even their NL playoff

matchup at one game each.

The NLDS shifts to St. Louis for Game 3 on Tuesday. Cole Hamels

will be the third straight All-Star pitcher to face the Cardinals,

who'll send Jaime Garcia to the mound.
