Pujols, Cardinals Beat Pirates
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Albert Pujols had the tying and go-ahead RBIs and Kyle McClellan rebounded from a shaky beginning to pitch well in his first career start as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Tuesday night.

Pujols hasn't seemed comfortable at the plate in the opening homestand, grounding into three double plays in one game and entering 2 for 16 with a solo homer.

The three-time NL MVP didn't exactly bust out against the Pirates but came through with a sacrifice fly to tie it at 2 in the fifth and bounced a go-ahead single through the left side off Scott Olsen (0-1) in the seventh.
