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.

Williams had started his Major League Baseball career 0 for 21 before his single to right in the third. What he'll remember is his first extra-base hit as a left-handed batter since high school.

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.

"I'm definitely aware that my speed can cause the other team some damage and help my team", he said through a translator.

When it comes to the rivalry between the Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals over the last few years, it's been close but still one-sided.

The All-Star game is over and the St. Louis Cardinals are ready for a ten game road trip.
