After enduring sub 40 degree temperatures and blustery winds this Cardinals fan expected a St. Louis win. Well, unfortunately for him (but fortunately us us Pittsburghers) the Pirates spoiled the wishes of the 40,000 plus fans in attendance with a 6-4 victory.


Eric Hinske, Adam LaRoche and Brandon Moss score the 4th, 5th and 6th runs of the ballgame. Jack Wilson’s double brought in all three Bucco runs.
