Neither team has scored in the game since the sixth, when a sacrifice fly and an Andrew McCutchen RBI single tied the game for the Pirates. Both runs were unearned, and Jaime Garcia's day was a spectacular one as the Cards' starter: eight innings pitched, five hits, no walks, 10 strikeouts.
Cardinals pitchers have allowed just two hits since Garcia exited. Pirates pitchers have given up just four, with closer Joel Hanrahan working out of a jam in the 14th.
Should the Cardinals win, they will tie the Pirates at 66-55 on the year.
