The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, 9-0, in game six of the National League Championship Series on Friday night, at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, to advance to the World Series.

By winning the best-of-seven game NLCS, 4-2, the Cardinals move on to the Fall Classic for the 19th time in franchise history.

St. Louis touched up Los Angeles starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw for four runs in the bottom of the third inning, before chasing him, by scoring three more on him in the fifth before adding two more runs in the frame, to take a commanding 9-0 lead.

That was all the support that starting pitcher Michael Wacha would need. The 22-year old allowed only hits and one walk in seven shutout innings, while lowering his postseason ERA. to a microscopic 0.43.

At the plate, the Cardinals were led by outfielder Carlos Beltran, who went 3-for-4, with a double, a run scored, and two RBI’s.

The Cardinals will face either the Boston Red Sox or the Detroit Tigers in the 109th edition of the World Series, which is tentatively set to begin on Wednesday, October 23, at the home of the American League representative.
