Cardinals beat Pirates 6-1 in Game 5 to win NLDS

by KIX 101.1/ 1230 KFJB News Department posted Oct 10 2013 11:15AM

Adam Wainwright pitched a complete game and the St. Louis Cardinals got two-run homers from David Freese and Matt Adams to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 on Wednesday night and advance to the NL championship series.

 

Wainwright scattered eight hits in his second dominant win of the division series, coming through for the Cardinals in a winner-take-all Game 5.

 

St. Louis gets to stay at home to open the NLCS against the well-rested Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.

 

The last three seasons, the Cardinals are 8-1 when facing elimination. They also won Game 5 of the NL division series at Washington last year and at Philadelphia in 2011.
