Worth noting

• Ryan Ludwick could do little to help the Pirates last year (hitting only two homers and driving in 11 runs in 38 games), but he's hurting them all over the place now. He beat them Monday with a 14th-inning single -- three innings after beaning bench coach Jeff Banister with a line-drive foul.

• Right-handers Chris Resop, Jared Hughes and Chris Leroux, who made a total of 87 pitches in Monday's extra-inning affair, were not available out of the Bucs' bullpen Tuesday.

• Starling Marte, 1-for-12 since coming off the DL (a double in the ninth of Monday's game), sat out Tuesday's start.
