Ross Ohlendorf beat the Cards in his third attempt. St. Louis beat him twice in St. Louis. But Ohlendorf bested them tonight with six innings of two hit ball. One of those hits was a solo dinger from Skip Schumaker.
On the other side, Nyjer Morgan's two run single capped a three run fifth off of Joel Pineiro to give the Pirates a nice cushion. Jack Wilson had three hits and Adam LaRoche, Freddy Sanchez and Brandon Moss had two hits each.
The Good
Tough to argue with Ohlendorf's line. 6 IP, 2 H, 5 K, 0 BB, 1 ER
The Bad
Nothing too much. Jesse Chavez and Matt Capps allowed three straight singles in the 9th to help the Cards pull within three runs. Chris Duncan hit into a game ending DP.
The Rest
Moss' last streak of multi-hit games was 8/24-26/08.
