National League Game Summary - Pittsburgh at St. Louis



(Sunday, April 28th)

Final Score: Pittsburgh 9, St. Louis 0

St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Russell Martin hit two of Pittsburgh's four home runs to back a second straight solid outing from Jeff Locke.

The Pirates left-hander held St. Louis to three singles over seven scoreless innings, as Pittsburgh beat the Cardinals, 9-0, in the rubber match of a three-game set at Busch Stadium.

Locke (3-1) picked up from where he left off in his previous starting assignment. He gave up only two hits in six frames of Tuesday's 2-0 win at Philadelphia.

Jose Tabata and Garrett Jones each launched solo homers for the Pirates, who improved to 14-5 in their last 19 games.

"We have power, we play good defense and the key is to be consistent and do it every day and we've been doing it every day," Martin said of his team's success. "The key is to just keep on doing what we're doing right now."

Shelby Miller (3-2) had seven strikeouts but surrendered three runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings for St. Louis, which lost its first series since dropping two of three to Arizona to begin the season.

"We had a tough time getting anything going. It was not the kind of day we were expecting," said Cardinals manager Mike Matheny.

Martin belted a solo shot to open the scoring in the second and his two-run blast capped a five-run ninth that included a two-run single by Pedro Alvarez.

Tabata took Miller deep with two outs in the fifth, and John McDonald greeted St. Louis reliever Fernando Salas in the next frame with a double that scored Brandon Inge.

Jones homered off Salas with two gone in the seventh.
