Cardinals 14, Dodgers 2
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Terry Pendleton and Vince Coleman each drove in three runs and Ken Hill and Dan Quisenberry combined on a six-hitter Thursday night as the St. Louis Cardinals beat Los Angeles 14-2 to complete a three-game sweep of the Dodgers.
Hill, 5-4, shut out the Dodgers for five innings, then tired in the sixth. Quisenberry came on for his fourth save and he also got his first major-league hit - an RBI-single in the seventh.
Tim Leary, 6-6, who surrendered five runs over the first three innings, was the loser.
The Dodgers have lost four in a row and have just 22 hits in that time. They are 1-7 against St. Louis this season, 0-6 at Busch Stadium.
The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the first inning as Coleman singled, went to second on a wild pickoff attempt by Leary and scored when Pedro Guerrero sliced a two-out double to right field.
Tom Brunansky walked to lead off the second and scored one out later when Tony Pena laced a double to left center.
The Cardinals jumped on Leary for three runs in the third. Ozzie Smith singled and stole second. Guerrero walked and then Pendleton poked his triple down the line, just eluding first baseman Eddie Murray. Brunansky then doubled home the third run of the inning.
Hill was cruising with a two-hit shutout through five innings but gave up two runs on three hits in the sixth.
Alfredo Griffin, Willie Randolph and Kirk Gibson singled for one run and the second scored on a wild pitch by Hill.
St. Louis added a four-run seventh inning against Tim Belcher as Jose Oquendo stroked a two-run double and Quisenberry got his run-scoring hit.
Quisenberry, who didn’t bat during his 10 years in the American League with Kansas City, was 0-for-1 with St. Louis last season and was 0-for-2 this year before singling.
The Cardinals added five runs in the eighth off Ricky Horton.
Pendleton and Brunansky each drove in one with a double. Pena added an RBI- single and Coleman capped the scoring with a two-run single.
