Mike Shannon, broadcasting in his 48th season for the Cardinals, turned 80 Monday. He was in the radio booth for the Cardinals-Pittsburgh Pirates game that night.
The Cardinals outfielder homers twice in a 7-0 victory over Pittsburgh.
Following strong starts by Flaherty, Ponce de Leon, Hudson and Wainwright, Miles Mikolas one-ups each of them by pitching the Cardinals' first complete game and first shutout of the season in a 7-0 victory over the Pirates. Tyler O'Neill powers the win with a two-homer game.
Bring your Cardinals questions and comments, and talk to Hall of Famer Rick Hummel in our weekly baseball chat.
O'Neill has knocked in nine runs in three games. Mikolas, who had lost seven of eight, scatters eight hits and walks no one for his second career shutout as Cards handle Pirates.
