PITTSBURGH -- Not even a shaky defensive performance by Albert Pujols could cool the red-hot St. Adidas Superstar Bianche e Rosa . Louis Cardinals. Nick Punto hit a go-ahead double in the ninth inning and the surging Cardinals overcame three errors by their superstar first baseman to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Tuesday night. Trying to stay in the wild card and NL Central races, the Cardinals won for the sixth time in seven games. "We still got a huge hole to climb out of, but at least were playing some meaningful baseball in September," Punto said. The loss dropped the Pirates to 67-81. Once in the midst of a promising run, they are stuck with a non-winning season for the 19th straight year. Pittsburgh is just 16-37 since briefly moving into first place on July 19. "We havent done enough things in a number of these games that have put us in position to have 81 losses, thats where we are right now," manager Clint Hurdle said. Working on the day he signed a $21 million, two-year contract, Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter hit an early two-run single. He took a 4-2 lead into the seventh, but Andrew McCutchen tied it with a two-out homer. "I was battling all night but I made some good pitches when I had to," Carpenter said. "It was one of those nights ... but it wasnt like they were bashing it all over the place. But we did what we needed to do, and thats whats important right now." The Pirates brought in closer Joel Hanrahan (0-4) in the ninth inning of a tie game, and he struggled with his command. Daniel Descalso collected his third single with one out and was replaced by Tyler Greene. Punto has struggled with injuries this year but looked just fine drilling a Hanrahan fastball into the gap and Greene scored easily. Pujols provided some insurance with a sacrifice fly to take some of the sting out of his woeful night in the field. The two-time Gold Glove winner now has 14 errors this season. "When you play this game, crazy things are going to happen," Pujols said. "At the end I just flip the page and Im glad we got the win and those three errors didnt cause a loss." The Pirates put runners on first and second with no outs in the ninth, but Pedro Ciriaco bunted into a forceout and Neil Walker grounded into a double play to end it. Kyle McClellan (11-6) earned the win in relief and Jason Motte worked the ninth for his sixth save. Carpenter, now signed to stay with St. Louis through 2013, allowed 10 hits, struck out six and walked one. The 36-year-old right-hander appeared well on his way to his 10th victory of the season until McCutchen hit his 23rd homer, snapping out of a 1-for-15 slump. "I had good stuff tonight," Carpenter said. "I felt like I did the best I could and I got beat by one pitch late in the game." Pittsburgh, which rallied for a dramatic 6-5 win on Monday, couldnt finish the job this time as the Cardinals kept their flickering playoff hopes alive. "It was a good, gutty hang-in-there type of win, especially after yesterday," manager Tony La Russa said. "You get your heart broken, which means it wasnt broken, it was just bruised a little bit." Heartbreak is an all-too familiar feeling in Pittsburgh and some baserunning gaffes helped continue the teams late-summer swoon. The Pirates lost an apparent run in the fifth after Ciriaco tagged up on a fly by Derrek Lee. Carpenter threw the ball to third and Ciriaco was called out on appeal for leaving too early. Hurdle came out to argue before heading back to the dugout, then took up the cause a half-inning later and was promptly ejected for the fifth time this season. "I couldnt let Pedro wear it," Hurdle said. "Everybody in the ballpark thinks he left early and thats not normal protocol to go in there after that but I had someone I trust tell me No, he left right on time and I just cant let the kid wear it. Ive got to have his back." Lee singled and scored on Pujols error in the second, and hit a solo home run in the third. Still, it wasnt enough to prevent the Pirates from coming within one loss of yet another losing season. "I made three mistakes, three errors, and they made some mistakes running the bases," Pujols said. "It happens. Its part of the game."

Thunder coach Scott Brooks took Durant out of the game with 1:24 remaining, leaving Durant short of a rare 40-point triple-double by a single assist. "I got on Serge (Ibaka)," Durant said, laughing. "He missed a dunk and he passed up a shot." Durant also was largely responsible for guarding Anthony. "He missed some shots that he normally makes," Durant said. "I just tried to play as strong as I can, contest some shots and not get discouraged when he hits them because he makes tough shots and hes a guy that can get hot. I just try to rely on my teammates, and they did a great job of helping me out, building a wall behind me, and I just tried to play as hard as I can." Reggie Jackson had 19 points and six assists and Ibaka had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who were coming off a 103-102 loss to struggling Orlando on Friday night.

"You can double him but hes a willing passer now and hes finding people all over the place. He was good tonight, real good," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said.
