   Backup outfielder Adron Chambers singled home the winning run in the 14th inning as the Cardinals outlasted the Pittsburgh Pirates and cut into their NL Central lead with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night.

   Sam Freeman (1-0) allowed a walk in a scoreless 14th for the Cardinals, who saddled the Pirates with their fourth straight loss and pulled within two games of them with a win in the 4-hour, 55-minute game.

   Pittsburgh had four hits the first time through the order against Adam Wainwright and led 3-0 after two innings on homers by Andrew McCutchen and Jordy Mercer. They had six hits the rest of the way.

   Both teams had chances in extra innings before the Cardinals, who had dropped four of five, cashed in.

   Jon Jay singled off Jared Hughes (2-3) with one out in the 14th with his fourth hit. Jay stole second and then raced home and beat left fielder Starling Marte's throw.

   Thousands of soccer fans were treated to an exhibition match between two of the world's most successful teams.  The Busch Stadium field was transformed into a pitch for last night's "friendly" which was enjoyed by a sold out crowd. 

   People spent a lot of time standing in lines for souvenirs or the chance to pose with the Europe league trophy won earlier this month by Chelsea.

   They paid to see the stars and the stars didn't disappoint: Oscar, Dzeko, Tevez, Torres.  English Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City battled at Busch Stadium to the delight of local and visiting soccer fans alike.

   Chelsea built a 3-0 lead, but Manchester City answered with four of their own. The final was 4-3, but fans here feel like they were the winners.

   The two teams play another friendly match Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

St. Louis plays host Thursday night to a soccer exhibition featuring a pair of rivals in the English Premier League. With the Cardinals on the road, Busch Stadium welcomes some of the top soccer talent in the world. But those with a ticket need to heed some warnings. KTRS' Vicki Pimentel has this report.

"Soccer fans heading to Thursday night's exhibition between Manchester City and Chelsea should expect extra security checks at the gates. St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson says it will be a lot like the playoffs or World Series, but planning ahead can save fans time.

Dotson says, 'Post-Boston, the stadium has put in new security measures where they do random wanding. They've always done bag checks now they're doing an additional layer of security to look for those types of things. So leave those items at home; pocket knives, pen knives, mace, guns, no place at a soccer match.'

Chief Dotson also urges the public not to leave a weapon in the car and not to leave anything you value, visible.  Reporting from St. Louis city, I'm Vicki Pimentel, KTRS news."

   The St. Louis Cardinals make it a habit to honor others before many of the team's home games.  But Monday night, it was the baseball franchise that was honored.  

   The Environmental Protection Agency recognized the team with a plaque for their leadership in food recovery and recycling.  

   By composting leftovers, like old hot dogs, and donating unused, uncooked food to food pantries, the team has kept 2000 tons of waste out of landfills.  According to the EPA, that’s far and away the best of any pro sports franchise.

FANS CAMP OUT FOR OPENER

Some 50 Cardinal fans set up camp outside Busch Stadium overnight Sunday in anticipation of Monday's home opener against the Cincinnati Reds.

St. Louis Police are advising revelers to leave early because of road changes and closures due to construction of Ballpark Village.  

Fans are encouraged to avoid construction delays by using MetroLink.

Pedestrians should also note that the pedestrian bridge between the Stadium West garage and the ballpark has been removed.  

OTHER CHANGES

8th Street is now a two-way street between Clark and Market with two north and southbound lanes.

Temporary stop signs are currently in place at the intersections of 8th Street and

Clark, as well as 8th Street and Walnut.

Walnut is now a two-way street between 8th Street and Broadway, with one westbound lane and two eastbound lanes.

7th Street is no longer in existence.

 

ADDITIONAL CAUTIONS FROM POLICE:

Those choosing to drive are urged to “park smart”— park in well-lit, populated areas, concealing valuables by placing them in compartments or in the vehicle’s trunk prior to arrival. The department strongly encourages citizens to leave firearms at home. Events such as baseball games are no place for firearms, as they are not allowed inside Busch Stadium and leaving them in a vehicle creates opportunity for criminals. Don’t let yourlegal firearm become an illegal firearm.

Event-goers are also advised to remain aware of their surroundings and if choosing to consume alcohol, are urged to drink responsibly. Criminals often target those who appear to be most vulnerable, including those who might be intoxicated.

There will be a significant law enforcement presence in all areas surrounding Downtown and Busch Stadium. Police strongly encourage anyone who sees criminal or suspicious activity to alert a nearby officer or dial 9-1-1.
