LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series.

After going homer-less in the first four games of the series, the Dodgers hit four solo home runs Wednesday — two by Adrian Gonzalez, one in the 5th inning and another in the 8th.

Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis hit two more solo shots.

The Cardinals trailed 6-2 in the 9th when the Cardinals tacked on two runs against Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen.

The Cardinals had the tying run on base when Jensen retired pinch hitter Adron Chambers looking at a called strike three.

Trailing the series 3-1, the Boys in Blue jumped out to an early lead on an RBI single by Juan Uribe in the bottom of the second, followed by another one-run single by Zack Greinke later in the inning.

The Cards responded in the third with a one-run triple by Carlos Beltran, followed by an RBI double from Matt Holliday.

In the bottom of the third, Adrian Gonzalez hit his second career postseason home run to give the Dodgers the lead. In the bottom of the fourth, Carl Crawford also hit a solo home run.

Greinke was the starting pitcher for the Dodgers, opposing Joe Kelly in a rematch of the Game 1 starters.

Greinke got the win, Kelly took the loss.
