St. Louis pulled off a 3-2 win against Los Angeles Tuesday to claim their division, a victory cemented when Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams launched a seventh-inning three-run shot against star pitcher for the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw.

With the Busch Stadium victory, the Cardinals nailed the best-of-five playoff by Game 4, the New York Times reports. The team will head into the National League Championship Series for the fourth time in a row, to face either the San Francisco Giants or the Washington Nationals on Saturday, depending on which team wins Tuesday’s showdown at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
