50x50_t470Jeff Locke was excellent once again as he gave up just two runs over seven innings. His 2.06 ERA is now tied with Clayton Kershaw for second best in the National League behind only Matt Harvey (2.05).

50x50_t470Starling Marte had himself a game. After leading off with his seventh triple, he added his seventh and eighth home runs in what was his first career multi-HR game.

50x50_t470Brandon Inge hit a three-run homer and Russell Martin and Gaby Sanchez each added solo home runs of their own. The five homers hit by Pittsburgh were the most in one game since July 22, 2009.
