Lynn shuts down Pirates as Cardinals cruise 4-0

After Jordy Mercer's ninth-inning double tied the game, Frazier drove in Mercer with a single against Brett Cecil. "More than usual, and I think it was getting on us".

Entering this season the idea was, Starling Marte and Jung Ho Kang would start in left field and third base, with Frazier and David Freese working in off the bench.

Francisco Cervelli went 2 for 4 with a double for Pirates.

Martinez is winless in his last four starts, and his last two outings have been among his worst of the year. Upon reaching the majors he struck out 37.5 percent of the time (18 times in 48 plate appearances) and hit.083 with a.196 OBP and.104 slugging percentage.

Gordon Hayward signs 4-year, maximum deal with Celtics

That fan had the last laugh as the Pirates went on to win the game by a score of 5-2. Better to just hit right-handed and protect his right (throwing) elbow than expose it by trying to step in as a lefty.

"I hit the ball on the barrel for the first time in a while", he said.

Cardinals: Placed OF Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day DL with a strained right groin and called up OF Magneuris Sierra from Double-A Springfield. Trevor Williams toes the rubber versus the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday in his first career meeting with the Redbirds.

"I'm definitely aware that my speed can cause the other team some damage and help my team", he said through a translator. The Cardinals lead the Pirates by 1 1/2 games for third place in the National League Central as the division rivals meet in the rubber match of a three-game series. Williams made three relief appearances against the Cardinals last season, going 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in 4 1/3 innings.
