Rookie Flaherty shines again, Cardinals topple Pirates 4-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jack Flaherty allowed four hits over six innings, Matt Carpenter hit his fifth home run of the season and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1 on Saturday.

Flaherty (2-1) followed up a dominant performance against Philadelphia last Sunday by keeping the Pirates in check. Flaherty gave up Starling Marte's long home run in the first but settled down quickly. The rookie struck out four, walked two and didn't allow a runner to third base over his final five innings. Bud Norris worked a perfect ninth for his 10th save.

Carpenter finished 2 for 5, including a blast off Trevor Williams (5-3) leading off the game that cleared the right-field seats. Jose Martinez added three hits for the Cardinals, who bounced back from their most lopsided loss of the season on Friday night to topple the Pirates for the first time in five tries this season.
