PIRATES 6 – CARDINALS 5 (14)
Win: Vance Worley
Loss: Nick Greenwood
Andrew McCutchen in the 14th inning delivered a thrilling walk off win blasting a 1-2 sinker from Nick Greenwood over the fence in center field for his 12th home run of the season and giving the Pirates a 6-5 win in extra innings.
The two-run homer extended McCutchen’s hitting streak to 18 games and pulled the Pirates within 3.5 games of first place. A win Sunday night with Francisco Liriano on the mound would send the Pirates to All-Star break just 2.5 games out of first.
