Jaguars only team with two rookies with
PITTSBURGH -- Pedro Alvarez mashed two home runs that travelled an estimated 831
feet Friday night.
cheap jerseys . It was a series of sprints by the burly Pittsburgh
Pirates third baseman, however, that ignited a 12-2 win over the St. Louis
Cardinals. Alvarez broke open a close game in the sixth by beating out a
potential double play, followed it up with the fifth stolen base of his career
then scored with a deft slide around St. Louis catcher Yadier Molinas tag that
gave the Pirates the momentum they needed to pull away. "I thought the stolen
base was key," manager Clint Hurdle said. "He puts a lot of focus on running the
bases and hes arguably one of our best baserunners when hes on." It certainly
looked like it, as Alvarezs outstretched left arm slid across the plate a split
second before one of the games best defensive catchers could nab him. The
Cardinals imploded from there as Shelby Miller (0-1) continued to struggle
against Pittsburgh. Miller fell to 0-5 with a 5.92 ERA against the Pirates in
his brief career after tying a career-high by allowing five runs in 5 1-3
innings. The right-hander is 16-5 with a 2.34 ERA in his 33 other major league
appearances. "Its not the park. Its not the team. I just pitched poorly today,"
Miller said. "I guess it just lines up that way where I dont pitch well when I
face them." Travis Ishikawa added his first major league home run in nearly two
years for Pittsburgh. Gerrit Cole (1-0) gave up two runs in seven innings in his
first start since losing the deciding Game 5 of the NL division series to St.
Louis last October. Six months removed from a taut NLDS that pushed the eventual
NL champions to the brink of elimination, the Pirates sent an early message they
have no plans of going away. Cole is considered the ace in waiting after a
stellar rookie season in which he was arguably Pittsburghs best pitcher over the
final six weeks. Eager to take the next step in his development, the 23-year-old
kept the Cardinals in check by mixing a fastball that consistently reaches the
upper 90s with improved offspeed stuff. He also showcased some of his maturity,
working out of a bases loaded situation in the fourth by getting Jhonny Peralta
to fly out. His only mistake came in the fifth when Carpenter drilled a shot
into the right field stands to pull the Cardinals to 3-2. Otherwise he teamed
with catcher Russell Martin to keep St. Louis in check. "I think it was just a
really well-played ballgame on our part," Cole said. "I cant say enough about
what Russ did behind the plate. Not sure there are any other catchers in the
entire world that could handle what I threw at him tonight." Pittsburghs offence
-- which mustered all of 20 hits in 35 innings of a season-opening series
against the Chicago Cubs -- made sure it didnt stay close for long after
pounding out 16 hits in eight innings against the NL Central favourites. Alvarez
began the year in a 1 for 15 slump but ended that with a home run to the gap in
left-centre for his first home run of the season. He added his second two
innings later with a long drive to right-centre that travelled an estimated 448
feet. His hustle down the first-base line in the sixth allowed Pittsburghs rally
to continue and the Pirates pressed the advantage. Molina committed a rare error
after Alvarezs slide, botching a potential rundown at third base when his throw
hit Martin in the back and rolled into the stands. The miscue gave the Pirates a
5-2 lead and Pittsburgh poured it on in the late innings. NOTES: Ishikawas solo

New York Yankees. ... The start of the game was delayed 1:05 by rain, the third
