Pineiro, Cardinals play spoiler | News

Pineiro, Cardinals play spoiler News: "The Cardinals made sure Joel Pineiro had ample reason to celebrate on his 30th birthday.

For the first time in his professional career, Pineiro spent a birthday afternoon on the pitching mound Thursday, and he walked away with a 12-3 victory over the Diamondbacks. Pineiro did his part with three-hit pitching over seven innings, and the offense sprang into action late with a combined nine runs from the sixth through the eighth innings."

... Amazing what a pitcher can do with some bona fide offense at the ready.
