• Asked on Friday afternoon to relive the emotion of hitting a pinch-hit home run in the Cardinals' Game 4 victory, Robinson seemed to take a deft dig at the Dodgers, who have drawn attention by their excessive celebrating this series.
Said Robinson: "It's hard to describe how it felt. Obviously, I wanted to celebrate a little bit more, but [I'm] just trying to be smart with my actions and kind of keep everything even with my emotions and not really let it get the best of me. But I was very excited."
• With the lefty Kershaw on the mound, Matheny moved catcher Yadier Molina back up into the cleanup spot for Game 6 on Friday. Matt Adams, who entered the game 3-for-19 in the NLCS, dropped into the sixth spot.
Molina went 2-for-5 with an RBI in the Cardinals' 9-0 win, while Adams went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
