(TSX / STATS) -- LOS ANGELES -- It might amaze some that Mike Leake leads the National League in ERA, but it isn't breaking news to the St. Louis Cardinals right-hand pitcher.

"No, I'm not surprised because it's been an eight-year process for me to get where I'm at," Leake said. "I'm not surprised for myself, but I'm sure it is a surprise for others."

Leake allowed four hits in eight innings and Yadier Molina homered, leading the Cardinals to a 6-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium.
