Aug. 14, 2013 at 1:46 AM

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Adron Chambers dropped an RBI single into left field in the 14th inning Tuesday to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Chambers, who had entered the game earlier as a pinch hitter, brought in Clint Barmes, who slid under Russell Martin's tag to give St. Louis the win and pull the Cardinals to within two games of the first-place Pirates in the NL Central.

Pittsburgh built up a 3-0 lead in the first two innings but did not score again. St. Louis tied the game with a run in the ninth on an RBI single by Allen Craig.

Sam Freeman (1-0) got the win as the last of five St. Louis relievers who worked after Adam Wainwright departed after seven innings.

Jared Hughes (2-3) took the loss after allowing a run on two hits. Andrew McCutchen and Jordy Mercer both homered for the Pirates off Wainwright.
