ST. LOUIS (AP) Marcell Ozuna had always dreamed of hitting a game-ending homer Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey , and finally did it.Ozuna got the his first of his career in the 10th inning Monday night, and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped Colorado’s four-game win streak with a 5-4 victory over the Rockies.”I’ve been working on it so many times,” Ozuna said. ”I was in that situation before and I couldn’t get it. Today was the time.”Ozuna connected against Jake McGee (1-4), sending a one-out drive deep to center for his 13th homer of the season. The slugger also extended his homer streak to three straight games.”Missed my spot over the middle of the plate. He was looking fastball too,” McGee said. ”Got to be a little more careful especially with a home run hitter like that.”Dakota Hudson (1-0) got three outs for his first career win.St. Louis has won eight games on game-ending hits this season and has won three of its last four contests.Colorado took a 4-0 lead when Nolan Arenado hit his fifth career grand slam in the fifth inning off Daniel Poncedeleon, who replaced Carlos Martinez when the right-hander departed with a mild shoulder strain with two outs.Arenado went deep for the third time in four games. The drive to center gave him 79 RBIs, one behind Cincinnati’s Eugenio Suarez for the National League lead.Martinez was activated from the disabled list prior to the game. He missed his previous start with a right oblique strain.”He just said my shoulder is sore but I can still go,” Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt said. ”The velocity was down a little bit. We just looked at it and went out and the rest was what it was.”Colorado left-hander Tyler Anderson allowed four runs in six-plus innings. He was replaced by Scott Oberg after he walked the first three batters in the seventh.”That ended up costing us the game so it’s obviously pretty bad,” Anderson said. ”I just felt like I didn’t know where the ball was going there.”Dexter Fowler then struck out, but Harrison Bader walked and Matt Carpenter hit a tying two-run single with two out.Charlie Blackmon singled off Martinez in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to 12 games, matching his season high.Gerardo Parra initially scored on a pitch from Poncedeleon to Anderson that sailed to the backstop in the sixth inning. The call was overturned after the Cardinals challenged the ruling on the field that Parra evaded Poncedeleon’s tag.Jedd Gyorko homered in the fifth inning for St. Louis. It was Gyorko’s first since July 5 and No. 8 on the season.”That’s a huge answer right there ,” Shildt said. ”Come back, it’s 4-1 and get them on their heels a little bit.”TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: RHP Chad Bettis (right middle finger blister) threw a pregame side session. He is scheduled for a rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.Cardinals: RHP Luke Gregerson was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. This is the third stint on the disabled list for Gregerson, who missed 52 games with the same injury from May 16 through July 13. LHP Chasen Shreve was added to the roster after he was acquired in a trade with the New York Yankees on Saturday, and LHP Tyler Webb was optioned to Triple-A Memphis.UP NEXTRockies RHP Jon Gray (8-7, 5.16 ERA) will face Cardinals RHP Jack Flaherty (4-5, 3.28 ERA) in the second game of the four-game series Tuesday night. Gray has a 1.26 ERA in 14 1/3 innings since being recalled from Albuquerque on July 14. Flaherty will be making his first career appearance against Colorado. He has failed to pitch into the sixth inning in his last four starts.— ST. LOUIS — The Los Angeles Dodgers‘ hopes of payback plus interest against the St. Louis Cardinals is alive and well, and can come to fruition with a victory Sunday night on national television.After the Cardinals swept a three-game series in Los Angeles three weeks ago, the Dodgers have come into St. Louis and have won three straight themselves, doing it in impressive fashion by a combined 29-11.On Saturday, the Dodgers also snatched away the second National League wild-card spot from the Cardinals.Article continues below ...In the series finale, the Dodgers will send right-hander Ross Stripling (8-3 Juan Lagares Jersey , 2.61 ERA) to the mound. The Cardinals will counter with right-hander Adam Wainwright (1-3, 4.70).It has been a roller-coaster season for Stripling, who started the year in the Dodgers’ bullpen, moved to the starting rotation because of injuries and then secured a spot on his first NL All-Star team. But the second half saw him go on the disabled list twice and getting moved back into the bullpen.Stripling’s latest chance to start has come after a solid spot start Wednesday at Cincinnati. He will be taking the rotation spot of Alex Wood, who has been moved to the bullpen because of recent inconsistencies.The change will give the Dodgers two right-handers in the starting rotation as Stripling now can pair with rookie Walker Buehler.“It is good,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, according to “Ross actually gets lefties out a little bit better, but he is a guy who throws from the right side and is a different look.”Breaking down Stripling’s assets isn’t likely to be necessary if the Dodgers continue to hit the way they have been of late. Yasiel Puig has five home runs in two days, including his first career three-homer game Saturday. On their current four-game win streak, the Dodgers have scored 37 runs.Wainwright will be tasked with making the Dodgers’ offense look like it did in an Aug. 20-22 series against the Cardinals. Los Angeles scored a combined six runs in those games or 11 fewer than they scored Saturday.Wainwright will make only his second start since spending 121 days on the disabled list because of right elbow inflammation. In his return Monday against the Pirates, the right-hander gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings while throwing 81 pitches.“It’s cool to be back , man,” Wainwright said, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Now I have to go out and execute a lot better than I did (Monday). It’s good to be back competing. I love being out there, I had such a great time pitching and now I have to pitch better.”Perhaps Wainwright can gain confidence from some of his past success against the Dodgers. He has posted a 2.69 ERA against them in 15 games (12 starts). He has a lifetime 5-5 record against Los Angeles.Stripling has faced the Cardinals four times in his career, but only one of those is a start. He is 1-1 with a 4.09 ERA against St. Louis. In that one start against the Cardinals in 2016, he gave up four runs and eight hits in five innings, picking up the victory in an 8-4 Dodgers win.
