Hit hard by injuries all season, the Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy had to leave Friday's game at St. Louis in the seventh inning. There is a chance McCarthy was dealing with a leg cramp on the warm evening. He left in a 2-2 tie but had given up just one hit.

The Dodgers and Cardinals appear to be in an even battle tied 2-2 in the seventh inning. Tucked away in the linescore, however, is the fact that the Dodgers have 11 hits and have left 10 on base. The Cardinals have one hit and have left one on base.
