Stephen Fife of Borah High struck out a career-high nine and gave up four hits in five innings starting for the Dodgers on Sunday, but Jon Jay hit a go-ahead RBI double during a three-run 12th inning as St. Louis topped Los Angeles 5-2. Fife, making his fourth major league start and first since Aug. 1 in place of injured Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, recorded his first six outs on strikeouts. But between the first and second ones, the Cardinals took a 2-0 lead as Allen Craig hit an RBI double and Matt Holliday scored on a wild pitch. Fife threw 88 pitches over five innings, allowing two runs and four hits. His nine strikeouts are two more than he had in his other three outings combined. I was a little anxious, a little hyped up, the 25-year-old right-hander said. Striking out the side in the first and second innings I dont think Ive done that this year. But obviously, Kershaw deserves to pitch. If he was at 80 percent, he'd probably be out there.
