CHICAGO (AP) - Patrick Kane scored his second goal of the game at 11:17 of overtime to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the St. Louis Blues 4-3 last night. The Chicago win evens their first-round playoff series at two games apiece. Corey Crawford made 30 saves.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets threw out the potential tying run at the plate in the ninth inning to hold off the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 last night. Jonathon Niese earned his first win of the season. Shortstop Ruben Tejada cut down Matt Carpenter for the second out of the ninth on a strong relay from center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Jason Kipnis drove in Nick Swisher with a two-out double in the seventh inning to send the Cleveland Indians to a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals last night. Kipnis ripped his double off Kelvin Herrera into the gap in right-center. The Indians tacked on an insurance run in the eighth on pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhall's bloop RBI single.

CHICAGO (AP) - St. Louis center David Backes was scratched for Game 4 of the Blues' first-round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks due to an upper-body injury. Forward Brenden Morrow also was scratched after Hitchcock said earlier in the day that he would miss the rest of the series. Morrow missed the final three games of the regular season with a foot injury.
