Cardinals homer in 14th straight game, beat Dodgers 5-2

LOS ANGELES (AP) Even when the Cardinals run into each other, they can't lose.

Yadier Molina and Marcell Ozuna slugged two-run homers and St. Louis overcame a lack of communication in the outfield to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Tuesday night.

The Cardinals improved to a major league-best 16-4 in August and moved atop the NL wild-card standings by a half-game over Milwaukee.
