Pirates 2, Cardinals 1

PITTSBURGH — Tony Sanchez's double in the seventh lifted the Pirates. The rookie backup catcher hit the winning single in the 16th against the Cubs on Wednesday. Edinson Volquez shined in his first Pittsburgh start. His 5.71 ERA in '13 with the Padres and Dodgers was the highest among the 81 pitchers who qualified; he allowed 15 runs in 13 spring innings. St. Louis' Adam Wainwright has allowed two runs over 14 innings and two starts.
