Cardinals rally past slumping Pirates 6-4

PITTSBURGH (AP) Harrison Bader stepped to the plate with a chance to pull the St. Louis Cardinals even knowing the heat Pittsburgh closer Felipe Vazquez was going to send his way.

So Bader dug in and swung as Vazquez's 99 mph fastball ran in on his hands. When it dropped for a single in the eighth inning, the game was tied. Moments later, Vazquez's control abandoned him and the Cardinals were on their way to a 6-4 victory over the slumping Pirates on Sunday.

"Obviously, it was pretty firm," Bader said. "It was just working inside the baseball and I got enough on it to just muscle it out there. That was a good one."
