Pirates try to sneak closer to Cardinals

With a win on Tuesday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates climbed out of last place in the National League Central. They beat the third-place St. Louis Cardinals, who sit three games out of first place and just 3 1/2 games above last place.

Such is life in baseball's most competitive division.

The visiting Pirates will look to continue their climb in the NL Central and deepen the Cardinals' descent Wednesday afternoon when the division rivals meet in the finale of a three-game series.
