Cardinals Vs. Pirates: Scoreless 18th Forces Game To 19th Inning

History is beckoning the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates, now entering the 19th inning of a Sunday rubber match. But there's no winner in sight, with the teams still tied at 3-3 after 54 up and 54 down.

Both teams scored in the 17th inning, but could got make a dent in the scoreboard in the 18th. Jordy Mercer perished on the basepaths after a two-out double for the Pirates, while Carlos Beltran's single and pinch hitter Adam Wainwright's walk couldn't get the Cardinals any runs.

A combined 15 pitchers have been used in the game, seven by the Cardinals and eight by the Pirates. St. Louis has just one extra-base hit in the game, a two-run double way back in the fourth inning.
