Cardinals 9, Pirates 3
An error by Andy LaRoche in the fourth eventually led to two runs scoring. (Tom Gannam/AP)
Starter Ian Snell was rocked for eight runs (six earned) and nine hits and walked three in four innings. Freddy Sanchez was 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in the sixth, and Ryan Doumit's sacrifice fly drove in a run in the first.
