PITTSBURGH (AP) - Adam LaRoche became the first player to have a home run taken away by video replay, but it didn't prevent the last-place Pirates from beating the Cardinals 5-2 on Tuesday night behind Ross Ohlendorf's two-hit pitching over six innings.

The Pirates had lost eight in a row and 12 of 13 before outscoring the Cardinals 12-3 while winning the first two games of the three-game series. The Cardinals have lost five in a row in Pittsburgh, including a 7-1 loss Monday.

Ohlendorf (4-3) mostly cruised against a Cardinals lineup that was missing Ryan Ludwick, who went on the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day with a right hamstring injury. The Cardinals' only run off Ohlendorf came on Skip Schumaker's homer in the fourth.
