Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Pitching still ruled the day in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. Only this time, it was the Dodgers' staff keeping the Cardinals off balance. Hyun-Jin Ryu scattered three hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings as Los Angeles shut out St. Louis, 3-0, at Chavez Ravine to avoid falling in a 3-0 hole. Hanley Ramirez played through a hairline fracture in his rib and went 2-for-4 with an RBI for a Dodgers club that had been stymied the first two games. They went the final 10 innings without scoring in a series-opening loss and were shut out in Game 2, but they found success against Adam Wainwright, the NL leader in wins. Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig ended LA's drought with RBI extra- base hits in the fourth inning, and that was all Ryu and the back end of the Dodgers' bullpen needed. Game 4 is scheduled for Tuesday night.
