LOUIS -- The Los Angeles Dodgers gave St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Mike Mayers one of the worst major league debuts ever.Adrian Gonzalez hit a grand slam and Howie Kendrick added a two-run homer while the Dodgers exploded for nine runs in the first two innings off Mayers and held on for a 9-6 win over the Cardinals on a hot, muggy Sunday night.Mayers lasted 1 1/3 innings and became the first pitcher to allow nine or more runs with fewer than two innings pitched in his debut since at least 1913.Sometimes, it can be more difficult when you have a young kid out there you dont know anything about, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. So for us to get on him earlier and the home run early there by Adrian was big. To see that power surge come was a big boost for us. To tack on another three in the next inning was big for us.Then we basically held on.Scott Kazmir (9-3) pitched five innings to earn the victory. He allowed three runs on six hits.Those first two innings were a battle, Kazmir said. I didnt have a feel for my breaking ball at all. I didnt have a grip. I was about to get some outs.

I felt like that was the probably the hardest part, just slow the game down. I definitely need to do a much better job of that.St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said he felt for his starting rookie.He was amped up for sure. Every kid thats picked up a baseball, thats their dream to be in that kind of situation and I thought he had pretty good composure overall, Mayers said. I thought he was in the zone a good bit but he was so amped up maybe he was overthrowing his off-speed pitches a little where he couldnt put guys away.Kenley Jansen got his 29th save in 34 opportunities with a spotless ninth.The Dodgers scored six runs in a 45-pitch first inning.Mayers loaded the bases on two singles and a walk. Gonzalez crushed a fastball 427 feet to center for his fifth career grand slam and first since Aug. 26, 2010.

Kazmir singled up the middle for the final two runs and his first RBI of the year.Matt Holliday doubled home a run in the first. It was the first run scored in the first inning by St. Louis since July 3.After Los Angeles chased Mayers in the second with three more runs, Tommy Pham cut the Dodgers advantage to 9-3 with a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning.Four St. Louis relievers combined for 7 2/3 scoreless innings.In the seventh, Los Angeles failed to score despite four walks.Dodgers reliever Adam Liberatore allowed three runs in the seventh inning.
