Pirates beat Cardinals to halt six-game slide

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- Starling Marte was 3-for-5 with one of three Pittsburgh homers and Chad Kuhl didn't let a long rain delay bother him Saturday as the Pirates broke a six-game losing streak with a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at PNC Park.

The Pirates (59-64) remained 6 1/2 games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central and four back of the Cardinals.

St. Louis (63-60), which had won two in a row and 10 of 13, dropped to 2 1/2 games behind the Cubs.
