PITTSBURGH -

Jon Jay and Matt Holliday each had two hits and two RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals jumped on the Pittsburgh Pirates early in a 10-6 victory Monday night.

Allen Craig doubled and drove in three runs for the Cardinals, who knocked around James McDonald (1-2) with a seven-run second inning. McDonald gave up eight runs, three earned, and walked two in 1 1-3 innings, the shortest start of his career.

Lance Lynn (2-0) labored through five innings to get the win. Lynn allowed four runs, walking three and striking out four.

Starling Marte had three hits and Neil Walker homered for the Pirates, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.
