Liriano Tosses Gem As Pirates Beat Cardinals

Francisco Liriano dominated on the mound to help the Pirates to a 5-0 win over the Cardinals at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Liriano allowed two hits and two walks while striking out six over eight innings to improve to 15-and-6. Garrett Jones went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI to lead the Bucs while Russell Martin added a solo shot of his own. Pittsburgh has won two out of three following a three-game skid. Shelby Miller gave up five runs in four-and-a-third innings for St. Louis and fell to 12-and-9. Matt Holliday was 2-for-3 with a walk in defeat as the Cards dropped their second straight after winning six out of seven. The two teams are now tied atop the NL Central with identical 78-and-56 records.
