A walk-off three run homer doomed the St. Louis Cardinals in falling 5-2 in the series opener with the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday night.

Josh Bell’s shot off Seung Hwan Oh with one out in the ninth ended the game breaking up a two-all tie.

Jedd Gyorko hit a two-run homer in the first inning to give the Cardinals a lead.  St. Louis was held to just four hits the rest of the way.
