We had some drama in the bottom of the fourth inning of this NLCS Game 4 at Dodger Stadium.

Cardinals starter Lance Lynn served up a leadoff double to Adrian Gonzalez, a walk to Andre Ethier and then sent what appeared to be a brushback pitch in the direction of Yasiel Puig‘s head. Puig, who pimped a triple in the Dodgers’ Game 3 victory, pivoted as if he was considering charging the mound. But he thought better of it and laced a run-scoring single past Cardinals shortstop Daniel Descalso instead, cutting into the early 3-0 St. Louis lead.

A.J. Ellis then singled home Ethier, pushing the score to 3-2. Lynn worked out of the frame thanks to a Skip Schumaker doubleplay ball, but it was another shaky inning from the 26-year-old right-hander. Then again, Dodgers starter Ricky Nolasco has already been pulled from the game. We could be in for a long night.

    Where was the drama?

    And there is no way with 2 on and ) outs that any pitcher is going to hit a batter just to prove a point.

    But let’s create controversy where it doesn’t exist.

      Agreed. That would be a pretty stupid place to try to make a point. Pitching inside, people! The batter doesn’t own the plate. You can’t win without the inside pitch.
