Cardinals Vs. Pirates: Game Heads To 16th Inning

The St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates will need at least a 16th inning to decide their Sunday contest, still tied at 2-2 after the 15th inning. That's probably not so sweet for either team.

After Jaime Garcia went eight innings and struck out 10, it was unlikely any Cardinals pitcher would match his effort on the day. Joe Kelly's trying, though, and has struck out four in the last four innings.

Five Pittsburgh pitchers have combined to let up five hits in seven innings of relief of Jeff Karstens.

The only two batters with multiple hits on the day, St. Louis' Allen Craig and Pittsburgh's Travis Snider, have each left the game, Craig for a pinch runner and Snider with an injury.
