PITTSBURGH (AP) – Matt Holliday and Randal Grichuk homered, and the surging St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with an 8-3 victory Sunday.

Holliday and Yadier Molina each had three hits. Mike Leake reverted back to his mastery of Pittsburgh with seven effective innings for the Cardinals, who have won five straight games and seven of eight.

Leake had won seven consecutive decisions against the Pirates before losing his Cardinals debut at PNC Park on April 6. St. Louis entered this weekend series having lost 22 of its past 31 in Pittsburgh but won a series at PNC Park for the first time since 2012 and earned a sweep there for the first time since 2008.
