Adrian Gonzalez: Hit two home runs for the LA Dodgers
Two home runs from Adrian Gonzalez helped to keep the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series with a 6-4 win over the St Louis Cardinals in game five.
The Cardinals remain just one win away from the World Series, but Gonzalez's efforts, allied with homers from Carl Crawford and AJ Ellis, ensured the Dodgers are now 3-2 behind in the best-of-seven-series.
Gonzalez's first homer was Los Angeles' first of the series against the Cardinals although Crawford and Ellis also hit out to save their season.
St Louis attempted to rally late on by scoring two in the ninth inning off closer Kenley Jansen, who then held his nerve to strike out pinch-hitter Adron Chambers and seal victory for the Dodgers.
Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera and Austin Jackson blasted six RBIs between them as the Detroit Tigers levelled up their American League Championship Series with the Boston Red Sox following a 7-3 victory.
A five-run second-inning set the Tigers firmly on course for a win that saw them even up the series at 2-2 after game four.
Detroit had blown a 5-0 lead in game two, but there was to be no repeat as Doug Fister allowed just one run in six innings to leave the Red Sox frustrated.
