NLCS Game 4: T-Plush makes a splash

ST. LOUIS -- They booed him. He beat them. Milwaukee outfielder Nyjer Morgan was back in the lineup for Game 4, and pesky "Tony Plush" had two hits and scored the go-ahead run in the fifth. Brew Crew wins, 4-2, behind Randy Wolf's seven strong innings at Busch Stadium.

The best-of-seven series is knotted at 2-apiece, meaning the NLCS will return to Milwaukee. 

For once, the Cardinals didn't score in the first inning, but they did take a 2-0 lead, thanks in part to Matt Holliday's solo cheapie to RF in the second inning. 

Ryan Braun singled home T-Dot in the fifth -- and the Brew Crew was back in Beast Mode.

Morgan was not available for comment after the game, saying, "No dice" to reporters.

The Ax Man closed it out in the ninth, despite allowing a single by pinch-hitter Lance Berkman.
