    Russell Martin knocked the 1,000th hit of his career on Wednesday night when he tied the game on an RBI double off Tigers pitcher Buck Farmer.

  • Pirates' offense breaks out to sink Tigers

    For the second straight game, the Pirates showed no mercy for the D-backs' bullpen, scoring seven runs in the last two innings for a contentious 8-3 victory on Saturday night.

    The Pirates on Saturday won a sixth-inning challenge, which overturned a safe call at second base and ended the Rockies' half of the inning. In the eighth, a crew chief review was initiated on a crucial out call.

  • Volquez goes distance as Bucs bash Cards

    This must be why they show up and keep playing the game, as manager Clint Hurdle plainly put it the other day. After getting flattened and being flat for three straight nights here, on the fourth night the Pirates made it all right with a 9-1 beating of the Cardinals.

  • Locke earns first win as Bucs clinch series

    The Pirates got another workman-like effort from their starter on Tuesday, as Jeff Locke went 7 1/3 innings and gave up three runs, and Pittsburgh beat the Rays, 6-5, for the second straight night at Tropicana Field.

  • Martin's walk-off walk caps Bucs' win in 12th

    Three innings after Jason Grilli surrendered a game-tying ninth-inning homer, Russell Martin walked with two outs and the bases loaded to give the Bucs a 4-3 win over the Reds on Thursday afternoon at PNC Park.

  • Bucs ride eight-run sixth to blow out Brewers

    The Bucs' eight-run sixth against the Brewers marked the best inning they have had at the plate all season. They turned a two-run lead into a double-digit cushion and breezed to a 15-5 win against the first-place Crew at PNC Park.

  • Bucs snap nine-game Dodger Stadium skid

    The Pirates bats got behind Gerrit Cole on Thursday night to end their nine-game losing streak at Dodger Stadium. Cole went 6 1/3 innings, while the Bucs got two RBIs from Josh Harrison and home runs from Pedro Alvarez and Russel Martin.

  • Martin to catch Grilli in simulated game

    Jason Grilli and catcher Russell Martin, both on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained left oblique and strained left hamstring, respectively, will team up at PNC Park to set the clock on their returns.
