Pirates Make Cardinals Walk Off the Plank Again Winning 4-3

Pirates Make Cardinals Walk Off the Plank Again Winning 4-3

Jordy Mercer's double scored the tying run off Cecil, before Frazier's walk off hit.

Adam Frazier's game-ending single capped a two-run rally in the ninth inning that lifted Pittsburgh to a 4-3 victory Sunday. The threat ended when right fielder Gregory Polanco doubled Gyorko off first on Yadier Molina's line drive.

Andrew McCutchen's run-scoring single put Pittsburgh ahead in the fifth, and Matt Carpenter's RBI double tied the score in the fifth.

Francisco Cervelli went 2 for 4 with a double for Pirates.

Jameson Taillon (5-3) lost for the first time in almost a month. Rather than go with righty Phil Gosselin or play Freese in a day game after a night game, manager Clint Hurdle started the switch-hitting Moroff at third. "More than usual, and I think it was getting on us".

The run support proved crucial for Milwaukee starter Zach Davies, who handed Philadelphia another four runs in the fifth and sixth innings with a two-RBI single from Maikel Franco and a two-run homer from Odubel Herrera.

Cardinals: Placed OF Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day DL with a strained right groin and called up OF Magneuris Sierra from Double-A Springfield. No player in Cardinals franchise history has started his career with hits in his first nine games.
