Cardinals use small ball to tie Nats 1-1

The Washington Nationals used the long ball to take a 1-0 lead in Game 4 of their division series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Adam LaRoche's second home run of the series.

The Cardinals fought back and scored a run without a hit in the top of the third inning. Pete Kozma drew a walk off Ross Detwiler. Pitcher Kyle Lohse was the next hitter. You probably don't need me to tell you what happened next, but then again, that's why we're here!

Of course, Lohse attempted a sacrifice bunt. He was successful on the first pitch in advancing Kozma to second base. The next hitter, Jon Jay, reached on an error by shortstop Ian Desmond, with Kozma taking third.

Carlos Beltran lofted a 1-0 pitch from Detwiler into center field; Kozma scored and the game was tied. The out also advanced Jay to second base, but he was stranded there as Matt Holliday was called out on strikes to end the inning.
