ST. LOUIS, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Aaron Miles keyed a two-run rally in the ninth inning with an RBI triple Monday, boosting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 2-1 victory over St. Louis.
Miles then scored the go-ahead tally when Rod Barajas hit a hard grounder to shortstop Rafael Furcal with the infield drawn in. Furcal knocked the ball down but threw home too late to prevent the run from scoring.
Matt Guerrier (4-3) earned the win with a scoreless eighth and Javy Guerra picked up his 11th save for the Dodgers.
Dodgers starter Nathan Eovaldi went five innings, allowing one run on one hit -- a home run by Lancer Berkman -- while walking one and striking out two.
Carpenter allowed only one run on five hits over eight frames and Lance Berkman homered for the Cardinals' only run.
