Bucs Blank Cards In Rubber Match

Russell Martin homered twice and drove in three as the Pirates blanked the Cardinals 9-0 in the rubber game of a weekend series at Busch Stadium. Shelby Miller struck out seven over five-and-two-thirds innings, but allowed three runs to suffer the loss and fall to 3-and-2. The Cards managed just three hits in their second straight loss. St. Louis launches a three-game set with the Reds starting tonight.
