At St. Louis‚ Stan Musial has a double and homer to drive in 2 runs as the Cards beat the Pirates‚ 4-2. A bright spot for the Bucs is Ralph Kiner's first ML homer‚ off Howie Pollet‚ in the 8th. It is the first run Pollet has allowed after 35.2 consecutive scoreless innings: he finished 1943 with 3 shutouts and 28 scoreless innings. The Cards go from white to red at 3B‚ as Schoendienst‚ a left fielder last season‚ replaces Whitey Kurowski‚ rusty after his holdout.
