The Dodgers jumped all over St. Louis Cardinals starter Mike Mayers early in his major league debut, then hung on for a 9-6 victory. The box score is here.

Through 100 games, the Dodgers are 56-44, identical to their record through 100 games last year.

Only four teams have taxed their bullpen with more innings this season than the Dodgers.
