 LOS ANGELES (AP) - St. Louis third baseman David Freese has left Game 3 of the NL championship series in the fifth inning Monday night with an apparent ankle injury.
Pinch-runner Daniel Descalso then made a major mistake in his place, getting doubled off second base to hurt a St. Louis rally.
Freese singled to lead off the fifth with the Cardinals' first hit off Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu, but the Cardinals' training staff came out to meet him at first base.
After Freese advanced to second on Matt Adams' single, Descalso emerged from the St. Louis dugout to replace Freese.
Descalso then took off for third base on Jon Jay's tailing fly to shallow left field, and Carl Crawford doubled him up.
The Cardinals failed to score in the inning and trailed 2-0.
