PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rookie Dylan Carlson hit a three-run homer to cap a six-run outburst to help the St. Louis Cardinals earn a doubleheader sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 7-2 victory in the nightcap.
The Pirates committed three errors in the sixth, paving the way for Carlson’s second career home run.
St. Louis took the opening game 6-5 behind home runs from Kolten Wong and Tyler O’Neill.
