The Pirates walked off against the St. Louis Cardinals for the second time in three games Sunday, winning 4-3 at PNC Park. He stepped into the box in the fifth against Jameson Taillon with Luke Voit on first and two outs in a one-run game before sending a ball to the gap in left-center, with Voit coming around to score when Pittsburgh centerfielder Andrew McCutchen overran the ball. St. Louis posted eight hits and a pair of walks with Matt Carpenter and Tommy Pham going a combined 5-8 with each driving in a run and scoring. Matt Carpenter went 2 for 4 with an RBI as the Cardinals sent the Pirates to just their second loss in the last eight games.

"He's in a good place, he's throwing the ball well", Matheny said. Jordy Mercer's double scored the tying run off Cecil, before Frazier's walk off hit.

The Pittsburgh hurler scattered 10 hits over 5.2 innings, struck out five and allowed just two runs. Rather than go with righty Phil Gosselin or play Freese in a day game after a night game, manager Clint Hurdle started the switch-hitting Moroff at third. Pham is 9 for 14 over his last four games.
