Pirates, Cardinals hope to continue to swing hot bats

PITTSBURGH -- Offense has been king through the first half of an important four-game series between National League Central rivals St. Louis and Pittsburgh.

The Cardinals have 22 runs and 28 hits through two games, both wins over the Pirates, who have 17 runs and 25 hits.

"The offense has really been doing a great job," St. Louis' Matt Carpenter said after Friday's 11-10 game that turned into a nail-biter. "Guys have really settled in to their roles and (are) just swinging the bats with a lot of confidence, making it tough on the opposing pitcher and grinding out at-bats."
