Cardinals hold off Pirates 6-5 in Game 1 of doubleheader

PITTSBURGH (AP) Kolten Wong hit the second leadoff home run of his career, Tyler O'Neill added a two-run shot and the St. Louis Cardinals held off the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Friday.

Ryan Helsley recorded the final two outs for his first career save, and it didn't come easily.

With two outs and no one on, umpires were forced to review the pitch sequence to Kevin Newman after plate ump Jordan Baker apparently lost track of the count.
