Recap


Omar Infante homered twice and drove in five runs, and Logan Morrison collected four hits and three RBIs as the Florida Marlins began their 11-game road trip Friday with a 13-4 rout of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Infante opened the scoring with a solo shot off Ross Ohlendorf (0-2) in the first and made it 2-0 with an RBI double an inning later. After Pittsburgh halved the deficit in the bottom of the second, Infante highlighted Florida's biggest inning of the season with a three-run blast.

It was Infante's sixth career multi-homer game and second this season.

Morrison belted a two-run homer and starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco added an RBI single as the Marlins opened the third with six straight hits and collected 10 overall in the frame.

Nolasco (10-10), who had two hits and scored twice, allowed three runs over six innings en route to his first win in five starts. The righthander had his scoreless inning streak against Pittsburgh snapped at 22 2/3 when Pedro Ciriaco hit an RBI single with two outs in the second.

Ciriaco added an RBI triple, Alex Presley had two hits and an RBI while Derrek Lee hit a run-scoring single for the Pirates, who fell to 2-2 on their nine-game homestand. Lee has hit safely in 10 of 11 games with Pittsburgh and is 11-for-23 (.478) with eight RBIs in six contests since returning from a broken wrist.
