Pirates-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals are alone atop the NL Central for the first time this year after rallying to take the opener of this pivotal three-game series against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.

Getting Adam Wainwright on track could prove especially key if they want to remain there.

With August behind him, Wainwright tries to avenge last week's defeat to the division rival Pirates on Tuesday night.
