Cards Clip Pirates

Matt Holliday's go-ahead two-run single in the seventh inning held up as the Cardinals clipped the Pirates 3-2 in the opener of a three-game series at PNC Park. Jon Jay drove in the other run and then scored in the three-run seventh for the Redbirds, who have won six of their last eight. John Lackey fired seven innings of one-run ball as he improved to 2-and-1 with St. Louis and 13-and-8 overall. Trevor Rosenthal closed it out for his 39th save.
