ST. LOUIS -- Jung Ho Kang is playing while under investigation for sexual assault , and the Pirates infielder helped Pittsburgh climb in the standings Wednesday night.Kang drove in two key runs with a seventh-inning double a day after Chicago police announced their investigation, and Pittsburgh beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-5 on Wednesday night for its sixth straight comeback win.Kangs double off Jonathan Broxton (1-1) put the Pirates up 6-5 after they trailed 5-1.Kang, through an interpreter, declined to comment on the assault allegations after the game in his first public remarks. He did talk about the latest comeback victory, which gave Pittsburgh seven consecutive wins overall and leapfrogged them past St. Louis for second place in the NL Central.Not only myself but also all the teammates and the team as a whole unit, we always think positive and keep our heads in the fight, Kang said. And thats what we did today and the last couple of days.In a statement Tuesday, police said a 23-year-old woman reported being assaulted by Kang inside a hotel. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the Chicago woman met Kang through a dating app. Kang invited the woman to his hotel room on June 17, after the Pirates played the Cubs.The woman said she blacked out, then drifted in and out of consciousness as he sexually assaulted her. The womans name has not been released.Kang has not been charged, and Major League Baseball said in a statement it would respond fully as additional facts emerge.The Pirates have won three straight series at Busch Stadium after dropping their previous seven in St. Louis.Pirates relievers combined for five scoreless innings. A.J. Schugel (2-2) got the win and Mark Melancon picked up his 26th save.Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke lasted just four innings and had his three-start winning streak snapped.Typically you dont get away with starts like that, Locke said. Four innings from your starter, five runs and you probably dont have a good chance to win the game. But the guys dont give up. You know its kind of inspiring.Rookie shortstop Aledmys Diaz went 3 for 5. His 12th homer of the season tied the game 1-1 in the third and his single in the fourth capped a four-run rally for the Cardinals.Jaime Garcia exited after giving up a pair of walks to start the sixth. Both walks came around to score.The Cardinals have lost three straight and fell to 18-26 at home. They have lost 10 games in a row at home to teams with winning records.UPON FURTHER REVIEWCardinals manager Mike Matheny successfully challenged first base umpire Dan Iassognas out call on Kolten Wong that wouldve ended a four-run rally in the fourth. After a 1 minute, 35 second review, Wong was ruled safe on his bunt attempt. The Cardinals added two extra runs due to the challenge as Jedd Gyorko scored on Wongs hit and Diaz followed with an RBI single.CARPENTER INJUREDCardinals All-Star second baseman Matt Carpenter left the game in the third inning with a right oblique injury after swinging awkwardly at one of Lockes pitches. Carpenter was replaced by Wong.Matheny said Carpenter was in the MRI tube as he spoke to reporters after the game.I have a high level of concern because Ive felt that injury and Ive seen it, Matheny said. It can be tough, but Im not going to make any conclusions until we hear from the people that know what theyre talking about.MUSICAL CHAIRSThe Pirates recalled LHP Kyle Lobstein and optioned LHP Steven Brault to Triple-A Indianapolis. It is the fourth roster move in as many days for the Pirates.STAGE FRIGHTFans that bought a special theme ticket received a John Goodman bobblehead, commemorating his character in The Big Lebowski. Goodman, a St. Louis native, threw out the first pitch.I immediately was scared and I was going to say no, but I thought it might be fun, Goodman said. I dont deserve this.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: An MRI on C Chris Stewarts knee showed wear and tear and could require surgery, but Stewart hopes to rehab and play through it. ... RHPs Gerrit Cole (triceps) and Ryan Vogelsong (facial fractures) will throw bullpens Thursday.Cardinals: C Brayan Pena (knee) was placed on the 15-day DL and C Alberto Rosario was called up from Triple-A Memphis. 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) sat Wednesday and is day-to-day.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Tyler Glasnow will make his major league debut.

Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness. If it is not your day, it is likely it wont be your evening either. On the first day of the Kolkata Test, New Zealand woke up to the news that Kane Williamsons illness had not subsided, and that he was not going to play. Some fans might have thought a new captain might at least win the toss. The new captain, Ross Taylor, thought he had, but reality struck immediately. Match referee David Boon told him Virat Kohli had. It was a commemorative coin, Taylor said suggesting he didnt quite get the head and tail on the coin right. Thought Id won it. Then Boonie said Kohli had won.For a while it did seem like a good toss to lose as the bowlers picked up early wickets, but once the Indian lower order took them across 300, it was always going to be a losing battle for New Zealand. The toss here didnt play that big a part, though. Taylor agreed. [Would have been] nice to bat first but dont think that wouldve had made too much difference, Taylor said. They put us under pressure at times, and we werent able to sustain it with the bat.Indias first-innings score gave them a 112-run lead, which meant New Zealand couldnt afford to attack for too long even when they had India down at 43 for 4 and 106 for 6 in the second innings. Id hark back to being 100 runs behind in that first innings, Taylor said when asked of a third straight failure to run through Indias tail. In hindsight it would have been nice to score a few more runs and if India were 3 for 40 and their lead wasnt as much. Any time you are playing catch up from that far behind, there is a lot of what-ifs.We could go through every session. At the end of the day we were beaten by a better side. Our pacemen were definitely positive and even the way [Mitchell] Santner and Jeets [Jeetan Patel] bowled. Jeets coming in, wasnt easy [for him] after only being in the country for a day and a half. To bowl as well as he did in that first innings and score some valuable runs, [without which] we could have been even further behind the eight ball. Yes we are disappointed, weve got to take the positives and hopefully we can play better in the next match.One of the positives was their bowling, which improved from Kanpur. The bowlers fought throughout and thats something we can take to Indore, Taylor said. It was pretty hot and humid out there. I liked the way they kept trucking in asking for the ball and the hoostility they bowled with sometimes.dddddddddddd Were seen as a friendly team and still are, but as a fast bowler you need a bit of mongrel. So for Henners [Matt Henry], who hasnt played for a while, to come and get six wickets on that wicket was good. Were still fizzing to go for Indore, hopefully we can play some fear-free cricket to put India under pressure.Taylor rued not being competitive for long enough. Winning key moments was important, Taylor said. The way Saha came out in both innings when the game was in balance, those two fifties put us on the back foot. Rohits innings was outstanding but full credit to our bowlers running in. A similar wicket would be good and hopefully Kane can win the toss.There was at least that bit of good news for New Zealand. Williamson came to Eden Gardens on the fourth day, and has shown signs he might be ready for the Indore Test, which begins on Saturday. Anytime you have your skipper and best player out it is disappointing, Taylor said, but there has been times when Kane hasnt played one-day internationals and this probably isnt going to be the last time, with injuries; the team has to step up.We cant rely on Kane all the time. It was good to see him walking about [today]. Im sure hell be a bit lethargic over the next couple of days; its still pretty tiring losing a few kilos and being stuck inside. But there are positive signs hell be ready for the next match, and it will obviously be good for the team to have our skipper back.Losing a few kilos is not just Williamsons concern. He might have been down with fever, but the others have never played Test cricket in such heat and humidity. These are some of the earliest Tests in an India season. The summer temperatures have hardly started to go down. It has taken a toll on New Zealand, which can partly explain some of their failures to get the tail out.Definitely up with hottest test series Ive been part of, Taylor said. A lot of their bowlers and batsmen were tired too. Pretty hot and humid. [In an] ideal world, [we would] send players [early] and get exposure. Comes down to funding but lucky some players come into IPL who mix and mingle with the stars of today to get knowledge.Kohli says its cooler in Indore so Im happy. ' ' '
