ST. LOUIS -- Building the best record in the major leagues is hard work.
The St. Louis Cardinals have overcome more than their share of injuries, leaning heavily on a pitching staff that always keeps them close and plugging gaps with youngsters who have risen to the moment.
Stephen Piscotty is a case in point.
The 24-year-old rookie leads the team with a .333 average since making his major league debut July 21. On Wednesday night, he hit his second home run in a 4-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants after being robbed of a long ball by center fielder Juan Perez his first time up.
