Cardinals Vs. Pirates Score Update: St. Louis Up 4-2 After 6 Innings

The St. Louis Cardinals opened their three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night. It's a pivotal set for playoff positioning, with both teams in the thick of the NL Wild Card race. After six innings, the Cardinals lead the Pirates, 4-2.

All of Pittsburgh's offense came in the fourth inning, when Andrew McCutchen hit an RBI single and Josh Harrison hit a sac fly to give the Pirates a 2-0 lead.

St. Louis scored two runs in the fifth inning to tie it up, off a Skip Schumaker double and a Kyle Lohse single. The Cardinals took the lead in the sixth when Matt Holliday hit a solo home run. Yadier Molina hit a sac fly a few batters later.

After that sac fly, Pittsburgh pulled starter A.J. Burnett and replaced him with Jared Hughes.

Lance Lynn relieved Lohse at the beginning of the sixth.
