National League Divisional Playoffs: Cards Squander Chances As Phils Take 2-1 Series Lead; Snakes Bite Brewers To Stay Alive

Both National League divisional playoff series continued on Tuesday.

At St. Louis:

Pinch-hitter Ben Francisco's three-run shot with two out in the seventh inning provided the difference as the Philadelphia Phillies took a two-games-to-one divisional series lead following their 3-2 road win over the St. Louis Cardinals, who stranded 14 runners on base.

At Phoenix, Arizona:

Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam home run in the fifth inning while fellow rookie Josh Collmenter pitched seven strong innings of two-hit ball as the Arizona Diamondbacks avoided elimination by handily defeating the visiting Milwaukee Brewers 8-1 and cut their divisional playoff series deficit to two-games-to-one.
