Daniel Descalso hit his first home run of the season to help the Cardinals best the Pirates 4-1 on Friday.

Descalso finished the night 1-for-4 with that solo blast off of Jared Hughes in the ninth inning. He's only hitting .200 (8-for-40) on the season, but with Tyler Greene also struggling perhaps this long ball will give Descalso a leg up in the second base competition.
