Kershaw pitched well, but can't break his postseason jinx with a loss to the Mets.
The Cards blanked the Cubs thanks to a stellar performance by John Lackey.
Royals come from behind to tie the ALDS 1-1, as the series moves to Houston Sunday for Game 3.
Friday's playoff baseball day started out with a marathon 14-inning game between the Blue Jays and Rangers, with the Rangers taking the game. Now with a 2-0 advantage, the Rangers return to Texas for what could be the series-winning game 3.
Today's action: Game 2 of both NLDS series. Cubs' Hendricks will take on Cardinals' Garcia in St. Louis (5:30pm ET), and Mets' Syndergaard vs. Dodgers' Cy Young Candidate Greinke in Los Angeles (9pm ET). Yesterday's losers will be looking for splits before the series move to the other cities for game 3. AL teams are off for a travel day.
