The Pirates survived hitting into three double-plays to mount another comeback against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday night, extending their winning streak to four with a 6-2 victory.

The Pirates’ offense finally woke up behind a career game from Francisco Cervelli, but the Tigers’ 20 hits were too much to overcome in the first game of Wednesday’s twin-bill, with Detroit winning 13-10.

Leonys Martin got the Tigers’ offense started immediatley, smashing a payoff pitch over the fence in center during the first at-bat of the game.
