Cards look to build on series-opening win at Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH -- Coming out of the opener of an important four-game National League Central series, the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates are upbeat going into the Friday rematch.

The Cardinals (62-59) were happy with their come-from-behind, 11-7 win Thursday; and, even in the loss, the Pirates (58-63) found reason to think they have some momentum.

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny liked what he saw in a 15-hit attack and the ability to shrug off an early 5-1 deficit, including batting around in the ninth.
