PITTSBURGH (AP) - Allen Craig homered twice to break out of a slump and lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night.
Craig was hitless in his last 11 at-bats before he connected for a two-run homer against Paul Maholm in the first. He added a solo shot in the seventh off Brad Lincoln. Kyle Lohse (11-7) picked up his 99th career victory by pitching seven solid innings.
