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 already were without center fielder Rick Ankiel (shoulder), and their only run off Ohlendorf came on Skip Schumaker's homer in the fourth.
Ohlendorf struck out five and walked none. Albert Pujols had an RBI single in the ninth against Pittsburgh's Matt Capps.
Notes: Pirates 2B Freddy Sanchez ranged far behind the bag and, while nearly on his back, threw out Pujols at first in the seventh. ... The reversal prevented the Pirates from homering in a season-high four consecutive games. ... Ohlendorf won his third consecutive start at home.
