Worth noting

• Starling Marte has been in the Major Leagues for only three weeks, but he is all ready a certified "silver slugger." The young outfielder received a silver-coated commemorative bat from Dinger Bats inscripted with the details of his first-pitch homer on July 26 in Houston.

• Through 46 games, the Pirates hit 35 home runs -- none with more than one man on base. Since, they have clocked 27 three-run or Grand Slam homers, five more than any other team in the Majors, entering Friday's action.
