LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Matt Kemp skipped down the first base line, watching his drive fly while calling out to the ball, trying to coax it to stay fair.Once it sailed inside the foul pole and landed in the lower left field seats, he had salvaged a victory for the Los Angeles Dodgers after their bullpen almost gave it away.Kemp hit a go-ahead home run leading off the eighth inning, lifting the Dodgers to a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night and evening their NL Division Series at a game apiece.This was big for us, he said. I feel like we definitely do have the momentum. We got continue to go, though.The crowd of 54,599 erupted in cheers as Kemp rounded the bases. Bubbles percolated into the hot night air from a machine in the dugout the Dodgers turn on to celebrate homers.It seemed like a mistake pitch to Matt and hes been hot, as everyone knows, and that was exciting, Dodgers starter Zack Greinke said.No one looked happier greeting Kemp in the dugout than a once-distraught J.P. Howell, who had served up a tying, two-run homer to Matt Carpenter in the top of the inning after relieving Greinke. Kemp hugged Howell, who pointed skyward in relief.It was incredible, man, Howell said. To me it was almost religious because I was praying so hard and it happened pretty quickly. I was pretty thankful.Kemp connected against Pat Neshek for his fifth hit in the best-of-five series.He tried to get me with a couple of sliders, Kemp said. I laid off some tough ones that were close on the plate, but he left one just out on the plate that I could do something with and I put a good swing on it.Game 3 is Monday night in St. Louis, with John Lackey starting for the Cardinals against Hyun-Jin Ryu of the Dodgers.It was there for us and we let it slip away, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.Brandon League got his first career post-season win with a scoreless inning of relief. Kenley Jansen retired the side, striking out two, in the ninth to earn the save.Now we just got to get our rest in and try to beat the Cardinals at their place, just like they did here in the first game, Jansen said. Got to go there and steal one.Greinke pitched two-hit ball over seven scoreless innings a night after ace Clayton Kershaw gave up Carpenters go-ahead three-run double in the seventh that helped the Cardinals win 10-9.The low-key Greinke, who has pitched in Kershaws shadow the last few years, tried not to put any extra pressure on himself to deliver a win.Any time personally I try to do more than I feel Im capable of, it backfires, he said. My game plan is always to try to lower my expectations and not try to do too much.Greinke belatedly took the mound in the eighth after his teammates had already taken their positions. Manager Don Mattingly came out to get him, and Greinke left to a standing ovation.Were seeing two teams that dont really want to go home and that are fighting for every game and every out and every pitch, Mattingly said. Its what everybody wants to see at this time of year.Howell took over and promptly gave up a single to pinch-hitter Oscar Tavares before Carpenter tied it at 2. Carpenter is 4 for 8 in the series, with two homers, two doubles and six RBIs.Im just trying to be aggressive, Carpenter said. Im getting some good pitches to hit, putting some good swings on it. I dont think theres any rhyme or reason to it.Greinke struck out seven, walked two and didnt allow a runner past second base. He didnt give up a hit until the fifth, when Kolten Wong doubled down the right-field line before Greinke struck out the next two batters to end the inning.Greinke was pretty nifty at the plate, too. He went 2 for 3 for his first career post-season multihit game, and even slid headfirst into third on Dee Gordons single in the fifth that eluded Wongs dive at second base.Its really important fielding your position and hitting, not being an absolute out, Greinke said.Cardinals starter Lance Lynn gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings, struck out eight and walked two.The Dodgers took a 2-0 lead in the third. Gordons groundout to second base scored A.J. Ellis, who doubled leading off for his fifth hit of the series. Adrian Gonzalezs two-out RBI single made it 2-0, with Greinke scoring from second.Mattingly had earlier challenged a call that Greinke was tagged out going to second. After a review, the umpires ruled him safe when Wong tagged Greinke with his empty glove after Wong had already moved the ball to his throwing hand to try for a double play.The teams that share a combustible history in the playoffs were under control, even after Greinke hit Cardinals centre fielder Jon Jay with a pitch in the first inning. Unlike a night earlier, when Yasiel Puigs plunking by Adam Wainwright triggered a benches-clearing scrum, everyone stayed put in their dugouts.Puig, who drew attention with his neon-green batting gloves, struck out on a high fastball from Lynn in his first at-bat. Catcher Yadier Molina appeared to say something to Puig, who reacted and had to be walked part way back to the dugout by umpire Rob Drake. Puig struck out four times.Molina and Gonzalez yelled in each others faces in Game 1 as both benches and bullpens emptied without punches being thrown.SIGN-GATEMatheny didnt consider the talk about his hitters allegedly stealing signs in Game 1 to be a compliment.That would be an insult. Absolutely, he said. Our guys go about their at-bats like pros. Its just rumour and right now it could just be a distraction.The suggestion that Kershaw might have been tipping his pitches on Friday generated a lot of talk among the games TV announcers and on Twitter.Ill be the first one to say that theres nothing to it, Cardinals centre fielder Jon Jay said.Mattingly said he knows most teams try to give their hitters the location of pitches, but he knows of only one player who ever relayed pitch signs from second base to the hitters. He declined to name the player except to say hes still active.We know theyre trying to do it and everybody tries to do it, he said. Were switching signs, you do all this stuff. Its just not that easy, so its execution.UP NEXTCardinals: Lackey (3-3, 4.30 ERA) needs 3 2-3 innings to become the active leader in post-season innings pitched and overtake leader CC Sabathia with 107 1-3. The right-hander hasnt lost a division series game since Oct. 1, 2008, against Boston when he was with the Los Angeles Angels.Dodgers: Ryu (14-7, 3.38) hasnt pitched since Sept. 12 while rehabbing from left shoulder irritation, but Mattingly isnt worried. He seems to be able to not throw a whole lot and be pretty sharp, the manager said. Donovan Mitchell Jersey .Y. - Peyton Manning made his fifth MVP award a family affair. Jeff Hornacek Jersey . On Saturday night, Winnipegs strong offense was again accompanied by some fantastic pitching which gave the Fish a commanding victory. http://www.officialjazzproauthentic.com ... zz-Jersey/. Not that he was complaining. Davis had 13 points, nine rebounds and a career-high eight blocks, and the New Orleans Pelicans emphatically snapped a three-game skid with a 135-98 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. Adrian Dantley Jersey .C. -- When Michael Jordan speaks, people still listen. Dante Exum Jersey . Subway workers in Rio de Janeiro, meanwhile, were holding an assembly to vote on whether they would strike to demand higher wages, threatening to disrupt transportation. By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision.MINNEAPOLIS - The search has begun for a new manager of the Minnesota Twins for the first time in 13 years. After four straight seasons of at least 92 losses, the mandate to find a fresh perspective in the dugout has been made clear.Were going to change the voice and change the presence, general manager Terry Ryan said.This is an organization that has historically promoted from within. In discussing Ron Gardenhires dismissal this week, both Ryan and team President Dave St. Peter acknowledged their belief in the benefits of hiring an internal candidate. Can the Twins do that and steer the team new direction at the same time?Well certainly open it up to anybody and everybody that is capable of managing a major league baseball team. I dont think we ought to just stay within, although that would be a nice preference if you could, Ryan said. That will be addressed and certainly explored, but also there are people outside the organization you should consider. Well get it done as soon as we can.Ryan added: Itd be nice to get a guy thats inside because he knows the workings of this organization and the market and the ballpark and the personnel. That would be great, but sometimes its not meant to be.Paul Molitor has been widely assumed as a favourite to succeed Gardenhire since he was added to the coaching staff for the 2014 season. Born and raised across the river in St. Paul, a product of the same high school as Twins first baseman Joe Mauer, Molitor has Hall of Fame member on his resume plus a long list of tributes from players in the organization whove worked with him during his 10 years as a roving minor league instructor.Though Molitor is an internal candidate with strong roots to the Twin Cities area, that doesnt mean hes in the same mould or from a similar style as Gardenhire. Molitor was the teams bench coach in 2000-01 under manager Tom Kelly, but he withdrew from consideration when Kelly retired due to the unsettledness around a franchise on the verge of being eliminated by MLB owners. Gardenhire got the job and kept it for 13 years.Molitor took a step back before rejoining the organization in 2003 to teach minor leaguers about base running and infield play. He was Seattles hitting coach in 2004 but came back tto the Twins the following year.ddddddddddddSecond baseman Brian Dozier is a proud protege, having worked with Molitor two years ago during his transition from shortstop on footwork and positioning.He takes so much time and effort to do that one thing, to get it down 100 per cent correct, to get all the information we need ... whether thats offence or defence or whatever it is, Dozier said. Hes probably the most knowledgeable guy about the game of baseball Ive ever been around.That would clearly fit with Ryans stated preference of qualities for the position.We want him to be a strategy guy. Id like to have him be an attention-to-detail guy. Hes got to be a leader, a tactician, handle the media, involved in the community, take an interest in our minor leagues and scouting and so forth, have a grasp of the organizational policies, Ryan said.Molitors influence on the up-and-coming players would certainly figure to work in his favour.Maybe a manager brings less to a more veteran team, but a manager can bring a ton to a younger team, owner Jim Pohlad said.This will be Ryans most important decision since he returned to his post in 2012, and the entire organization has taken the failures of the last four years seriously enough to realize the importance of assessing outside-of-the-box options.Among the other potential internal candidates are bench coach Terry Steinbach, former first baseman and current Class A Fort Myers manager Doug Mientkiewicz, and Triple-A Rochester manager Gene Glynn.With so many young players from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, a Spanish-speaking manager could be a wise move, so New York Yankees bench coach Tony Pena might be considered. Pena interviewed with Ryan in 2001 and was hired the following year as Kansas Citys manager. Other well-regarded bench coaches around the majors include Dave Martinez of Tampa Bay, Chip Hale of Oakland and Torey Luvollo of Boston.Lots of options outside. Still, that lure toward the inside will be strong.Just because folks have been inside, St. Peter said, doesnt mean that we dont believe they could be successful if given the platform to have their voice heard and that they couldnt be a part of establishing that winning culture.
