Pirates look to sweep two-game series from Cards

Apr 17, 2007 - 12:43 PM Pittsburgh (5-6) at St Louis (6-6) 1:10 pm EDT

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates were swept in a three-game series at home by the St. Louis Cardinals last week. On Monday, the Pirates have a chance to complete a two-game sweep of the Cards.

Tom Gorzelanny (1-0, 1.50) takes the mound for the Pirates on Tuesday afternoon against Adam Wainwright (1-0, 1.98).

Pittsburgh closer Salomon Torres got Albert Pujols to pop out with the bases loaded in the ninth inning in Monday's 3-2 win over the Cardinals, who slipped to 1-5 at Busch Stadium. The Pirates are looking to improve on their 5-2 road record.

Wainwright is off to a great start since making the transition from closer to starter. The righthander allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings last Wednesday at Pittsburgh.

Gorzelanny yielded just four hits in seven shutout innings against the Cardinals, but did not get the decision in a 3-2 loss for the Pirates.
