(AP) Carlos Beltran hit a two-run double and later threw out a runner at the plate as the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers were tied at 2 after 10 innings Friday night in the NL championship series opener.


It was the first extra-inning game in this postseason.


Dodgers starter Zack Greinke struck out 10 in eight innings, allowing just four hits. Cardinals starter Joe Kelly left after the sixth with the score 2-all.


Mark Ellis tripled with one out in the Dodgers 10th. After Hanley Ramirez was intentionally walked, Michael Young followed with a fly ball to shallow right field that Beltran caught.


Beltran made a strong, one-hop throw home and Ellis crashed into Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina.


Molina held the ball, but it was hard to tell whether he actually tagged Ellis. On such plays, however, umpires almost always give the benefit to the catcher and call the runner out.
