I think I write about this every year, but I do not care. It is great. It is one of the better NLCS games in recent memory.

Zack Greinke of the Dodgers faced Joe Kelly and the Cardinals in Game One of the 2013 NLCS. Joe Kelly plunked Hanley Ramirez in the ribs. In the third both teams scored two runs each, the Cardinals scoring on an RBI double. The game stayed tied for nine more innings until Beltran batted in his third run of the game. It almost did not make it that far, though.

In the top of the tenth inning the Dodgers were threatening. With one out a triple off the bat of Mark Ellis put a Dodger runner in scoring position. Trevor Rosenthal walked Ramirez to face Michael Young. Young hit a 1-0 pitch to right-center field. Ellis tagged. The rest... well you know the rest:
