Cardinals beat Pirates 6-5 in 12 innings

August 16th, 2013 - By Steve James

 

Matt Carpenter had four hits and

scored the winning run on Matt Holliday’s single in the 12th

inning, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates

6-5 on Thursday for their second extra-inning triumph over the NL

Central leaders in three days.

The Cardinals took two of three in the series to pull

within two games of the sagging Pirates, who have dropped five of

six. St. Louis won 4-3 in 14 innings in the series opener on

Tuesday night.

Rookie Kevin Siegrist (1-1), St. Louis’ seventh

pitcher, struck out two in a perfect 12th against the heart of the

Pirates order.
