Cardinals Vs. Pirates Score Update: St. Louis Leads 3-0 After Three Innings

The St. Louis Cardinals are leading 3-0 over the Pittsburgh Pirates after three innings of play on Sunday afternoon. The St. Louis offense has been able to do some work on Pirates starter Erik Bedard early, allowing the Cardinals to take the lead.

In the first inning, the Cardinals actually managed to load the bases with zero outs, but Bedard got the very next batter, Carlos Beltran, to ground into a double-play. While St. Louis tacked a run on the scoreboard on that play, David Freese flew out to center field afterwards, ending the inning.

Freese didn't take advantage of that opportunity in the first, but he didn't whiff on his second chance. In the third inning, with two outs and two men in scoring position, Freese came up to face Bedard and made him pay with a two-run single. That's where the game is at as far as scoring is concerned.

Lohse has pitched three shutout innings so far, allowing two hits while striking out two batters.
