PITTSBURGH, Pa. Jose Quintana Jersey . - Starling Marte swung so miserably at the first two sliders he saw from Arizona Diamondbacks closer Addison Reed in the ninth inning that the Pittsburgh left fielder knew more were on the way. So he stepped out of the batters box, took a deep breath and waited. "I was struggling the first two pitches but I was thinking about the pitch I want," Marte said. "He threw me a slider and it was a good chance to hit the ball." Was it ever. Marte turned an 81 mph slider over the middle of the plate into a game-tying, two-run double and then scored on pinch-hitter Ike Davis single two batters later as the Pirates rallied for a 3-2 win Tuesday night. "Every time were up to bat theres a chance we do something," Davis said. "Its hard to shut us down for nine. Weve done it a lot this year ... anything is possible with us." The Pirates were shut down for eight innings by Arizona starter Wade Miley before rallying in the ninth. Neil Walker and pinch-hitter Gregory Polanco started the inning with singles against Miley. One batter later, Marte turned an 0-2 count into a tie game. "He got a ball that he could get a barrel on," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "He slowed it down and put a good swing on it and hit it to the big part of the ballpark." Andrew McCutchen was intentionally walked and Davis hit a broken-bat single to right, scoring Marte easily as the Pirates won for the fourth time in five games. Ernesto Frieri (1-3) earned his first win with the Pirates after working a scoreless ninth. The abrupt ending ruined an otherwise stellar outing for the struggling Miley, who is winless since May 10. The left-hander retired the first 14 batters he faced and allowed four hits in eight-plus innings, striking out 10. Despite the slender lead, Arizona manager Kirk Gibson didnt hesitate to send Miley back out for the ninth in search of his first career shutout. Things changed quickly, however, when Walker and Polanco reached. "I didnt make good pitches," Miley said. "Actually, the pitch to Walker was a good one, a slider down and in, but I hung a pitch to Polanco. I was making pitches all night long but I didnt make them when I needed to." Until the late miscues, it appeared Miley was on his way to his first victory in nine starts. Miguel Montero and Aaron Hill produced consecutive RBI singles in the fifth off Pirates starter Jeff Locke. Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 4 with a run for the Diamondbacks, who fell to 27-2 when leading after eight innings. "I want to be the guy out there with the game on the line," Reed said after blowing his fourth save. "Sometimes it doesnt go the way I want or my teammates want it to." Locke lacked Mileys crispness but allowed only two runs over eight innings, yielding eight hits while walking one and striking out three. The Diamondbacks stranded six runners in the first four innings and were on their way to doing it again in the fifth before catching a break thanks to some sloppy defence by the Pirates. Goldschmidt singled with two outs and was attempting to steal second when the Pirates sniffed it out. Locke threw to Gaby Sanchez at first to start the rundown, but the burly Goldschmidt was safe at second when Sanchezs throw to shortstop Jordy Mercer sailed into left field. Montero followed with a single that brought Goldschmidt home, and Montero scored moments later on Hills flare to shallow right. Given some room to work with, Miley didnt let it go to waste. He struck out the side in the seventh and had little trouble in the eighth. Arizona nearly extended its lead to 3-0 in the ninth, only to have Gerardo Parra thrown out at home trying to score on a single to right by Ender Inciarte. Less than 15 minutes later, the Pirates were celebrating their second win in 35 games when trailing after eight innings.

The right-hander dropped his fourth straight decision in Los Angeles 6-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night, leaving his status very much in doubt as the Dodgers prepare for the stretch drive.ST. JOHNS, N.L. -- John Albert led the way on Saturday as his club made up for a poor start with a strong finish. After falling behind early, Albert scored two goals to propel the St. Johns IceCaps to a 5-2 win over the visiting Worcester Sharks in American Hockey League action. "It was just good to get the two points for the team, I think," Albert said. "We had a slow start but we came out in the second and third period and turned it on a little bit." "Well, its not the start we wanted for sure," added St. Johns head coach Keith McCambridge. "We go down the ice and get a chance and then it goes back down to our end and goes in the back of our net. As the game wore on I thought we got better and better. I thought the back-half of the second and the third periods were solid for us." Kael Mouillierat, Adam Lowry and Jerome Samson also scored for the IceCaps (28-17-3), who are 8-2-0 in their last 10 contests. Konrad Abeltshauser and Rylan Schwartz replied for the Sharks (22-19-4). Abeltshauser opened the scoring with a wrist shot from the point through traffic 35 seconds into the game. Mouillierat tied the game for the IceCaps, scoring a one-time wrister high-blocker side with 5:53 left in the first period.. Kerry Wood Jersey. . Sixteen seconds later, Albert took advantage of a loose puck in front of the net and gave the IceCaps the lead with a quick wrist shot. "You have to put (being down) behind you," said Albert. "You cant look too much into it. We battled back." At the 14:06 mark of the second, Samson made it 3-1 IceCaps when he finished a cross-crease pass from Kyle MacKinnon. Schwartz pulled the Sharks within a goal 12:12 into the second period with a high wrist shot on the end of a toe drag. Albert scored on a penalty shot 2:22 into the third period, as he chose to rip a quick and hard wrist shot from the slot past Worcester netminder Harri Sateri. "I really wasnt expecting to get the penalty shot, but Ill take advantage of it," Albert said. "I like to shoot on those chances, I dont really like to deke because you never know how the ice is going to be." The IceCaps went up 5-2 when Lowry found a loose puck off a rebound in front of the net and tapped it home 8:40 into the third. IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinson made 31 saves for the win while Sateri stopped 22 shots for the Sharks. St. Johns went 0-for-3 on the power play. Worcester failed to score on two chances with the man advantage.
