The Cardinals added another run before the game ended, and the Pirates dropped game three by a score of 6-4. In addition, Cardinals pitcher Zack Thompson tossed seven innings while giving up three runs on seven hits.

Oviedo’s final line was 3.2 innings pitched, four hits, five runs (three earned), six walks, and two strikeouts.
