Cardinals Shut Out By Pirates

A.J. Burnett and three relievers combined on a one-hitter as the Pirates shut out the Cardinals 5-0 at PNC Park. Neil Walker had two hits and an RBI for the Bucs, who earned a split of the rain-shortened two-game series. Carlos Beltran had the lone hit for St. Louis in the seventh. Shelby Miller gave up two runs in six innings to suffer his first loss.

The Cardinals didn't collect their first hit against the Pirates last night until the seventh inning. Carlos Beltran stroked a one-out double to the wall in right center to break up a no-hit bid by Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett. The right-hander had a perfect game going into the sixth, but lost that when he hit Cards shortstop Daniel Descalso with one out.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
