1971 Pirates Flashback

ST. LOUIS - Just one day after the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded St. Louis starter Jerry Reuss for 10 runs, the St. Louis Cardinals returned the favor to Pirate starter Luke Walker, who surrendered eight runs to the Red Birds in just 2 2/3 innings of work as the Cardinals trounced the Buccos, 8-3.

Jose Cardenal got things started for the Cardinals in the bottom of the first with an RBI single. The Cardinals held the slim 1-0 lead until Al Oliver capitalized on a sacrifice fly in the top half of the third inning.
