Cardinals vs Pirates

Following a lengthy rain delay, the Cardinals roughed up the Pirates for 16 runs on 22 hits. Rick Ankiel continued his tear going 3 for 4 with 2 HRs and 7 RBIs. Cardinals starter Mike Maroth was yanked in the 2nd after allowing 8 of 13 batters to reach base, but the Cards bullpen was able to stop the bleeding. The same could not be said for the Pirates bullpen which surrendered 11 runs in 5 innings as the Cards pounded the Pirates 16-4.
