Worth noting

• Irwin will wear No. 36 for the Pirates after wearing No. 57 in Spring Training.

• Pedro Alvarez (0-for-24) and Clint Barmes (0-for-17) both snapped long hitless streaks in the Bucs' season-high 12-hit win Friday night. However, the low man on the batting totem pole remains Russell Martin, who was 2-for-31 entering Saturday night's game.
