Cardinals Top Pirates
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Albert Pujols had the tying and go-ahead RBIs
and Kyle McClellan rebounded from a shaky beginning to pitch well
in his first career start as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the
Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Tuesday night.
Pujols hasn't seemed comfortable at the plate in the opening
homestand, grounding into three double plays in one game and
entering 2 for 16 with a solo homer.
The three-time NL MVP didn't exactly bust out against the
Pirates but came through with a sacrifice fly to tie it at 2 in the
fifth and bounced a go-ahead single through the left side off Scott
Olsen (0-1) in the seventh.
