The Cardinals couldn’t breathe until the final out, but this time they avoided a late inning collapse. After Thursday’s debacle, the Cardinals bounced back to beat the Pirates 4-3 on Friday night. Paul Goldschmidt nearly hit for the cycle delivering a single, double, and triple. Tommy Edman drove in three runs, two on his eighth home run of the season. J A Happ was rock solid once again as he pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up 2 runs. Saturday night the Cardinals will have Adam Wainwright on the mound and he has been dominating the Pirates lately.
