ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carl Crawford line-drive double off Shelby Miller's right elbow ended the St. Louis Cardinals starter's night after just two pitches and the Los Angeles Dodgers punished the rookie's replacements, too, in a 13-4 victory on Wednesday night.

Andre Ethier and Skip Schumaker each had three hits and a season-best four RBIs and Crawford had a season-best four hits and a walk. The Dodgers had 18 hits to top their previous best by one, a night after the Cardinals ended their franchise-record 15-game road winning streak, and are 16-3 since the All-Star break.

X-rays were negative for the 22-year-old Miller, among the league leaders with a 2.89 ERA while going 11-7 in 22 starts, on what the team described as an elbow contusion. Miller pivoted after the pitch to Crawford, but couldn't get his arm out of the way of the liner that bounded into shallow left field for a double.
