17 Ks

Pirates 6, Cardinals 3

After a rocky first inning, Bedard was on cruise control.

The Pirates’ Erik Bedard largely baffled the Cardinal offense Thursday afternoon, striking out 11 in only 5 innings, giving up 5 hits and 2 runs, both of those in the 1st. Lifted after 5, his teammates on the mound struck out 6 more.

The Cardinals once again staked their starter, Jake Westbrook in this case, to a lead, but he couldn’t contain the Pirates. 6 1/3 innings, 9 hits (one a homer), 4 runs, and 4 Ks.

Cards left 12 runners stranded.
