A pretty miserable game which included a rain delay ended with the Cardinals taking the first game of the series.
– A.J. Burnett wasn’t great, going 5.2 innings and giving up four runs on seven hits
– Kyle Lohse went five innings and gave up two runs.
– Both starters’ outings were cut short by the rain delay.
– Cutch had two hits and and RBI, and looked much better at the plate.
– Josh Harrison and Clint Barmes each drove in runs, but the Bucs just couldn’t come back against the Cardinals bullpen.
– Jason Motte closed out the win for St. Louis.
Pirates (68-60) – Cardinals (71-57)
Win: Lohse (14-2)
Loss: Burnett (15-5)
Save: Motte (31)
