PHILADELPHIA — Jake Arrieta threw like an old-school ace wearing a retro powder blue Phillies uniform fit for a throwback outing.

MIAMI — When things became testy between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins, Starling Marte kept swinging. And connecting. If the Pirates sought retribution for an inside fastball that sidelined Josh Harrison, Marte provided it by going 5 for 5, including a ninth-inning homer to cap a 7-3 victory Sunday.

That day nine years ago was hardwood ecstasy, a constant drug that flowed through the veins of a western Pennsylvania college basketball junkie faster than it takes the bathtub section of I-376 to overflow with water after a raging rain storm.
