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.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
