The St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game series sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates following a 3-0 victory Sunday afternoon at PNC Park. Harrison Bader hit a game-winning three-run home run in the second inning off Pirates rookie starter Will Crowe. The Bucs put men on base in each of the first six innings, but failed to score in the game. It was their fourth consecutive loss, dropping their record to 12-15 overall.
The Pirates open a three-game series in San Diego tonight at 10:10pm.
