• McKenry has 4 hits, leads Pirates by Marlins

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jul 27, 2013
    Michael McKenry had a career-best four hits and drove in two runs, Neil Walker and Garrett Jones each added two RBIs, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins 7-4 on Saturday night. McKenry was a most improbable catalyst of that attack. Michael McKenry, who notched a career-high four hits, followed with a single to left, capping Pittsburgh's three-run first. McKenry also saved an almost-sure run in the fifth to preserve what was then a 5-4 lead. The Pirates also started quickly in the third with back-to-back singles from Walker and Andrew McCutchen. But his RBI single capped a three-run first inning Pittsburgh's highest-scoring opening frame since June 18 and he added another single in the third to push the Pirates' lead to 5-1. Starling Marte led off the game with a broken-bat double down the left-field line, and Neil Walker, who entered Saturday's game 2-for-his-last-22, promptly brought Marte home on another double down the left-field line.
