PITTSBURGH (AP) — Gregory Polanco capped another late rally, driving in Jung Ho Kang with two outs in the 10th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.

The Cardinals took a 5-3 lead in the top of the 10th on a two-run double by Randal Grichuk off Arquimedes Caminero (1-1). Pittsburgh, which won in 14 innings on a homer by Andrew Mcutchen on Saturday, did it again 24 hours later against St. Louis All-Star closer Trevor Rosenthal (1-2).

Starling Marte brought Pittsburgh within a run with an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th. Francisco Cervelli tied it with a single and Polanco followed two batters later with a looping single to right for his fourth hit of the game.

Despite another disappointing loss, the Cardinals hit the all-star break with the best record in baseball, 56-33, and lead the Pirates by 2 12/ games in the N.L. Central.
