The battle between the first-place and second-place teams in the National League Central got off to an excellent start on Tuesday night. The St. Louis Cardinals bested the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 in a nail-biter rich in drama. Tonight, the Buccos (65-45) hope to regain the game they lost in the standings after last night's loss to Cards (72-40). Entering play tonight, St. Louis owns a healthy six-game lead in the Central division title race.
