Michael Wacha tormented the Pittsburgh Pirates late last season, but behind a 3-for-4 day by Neil Walker the Pirates were able to chase him after five innings and open their three-game weekend series against St. Louis with a 6-4 victory.

Walker scored a pair of runs and drove in another four, with the majority coming on a three-run home run in the seventh inning off Carlos Martinez which erased a 4-3 Cardinal lead.

In the 13th inning, reliever Jean Machi laid down a bunt that Pirates pitcher Jared Hughes fielded and threw low off the glove of first baseman Ike Davis.

Matt Wieters homered in the 10th inning to lift the Orioles to a 6-5 win over the Pirates, capping a sweep of a rainy doubleheader on Thursday at Camden Yards.

Baseball pundits are usually a rather stubborn bunch. Generational debates constantly wage as young writers try to explain baseball’s deficiencies through mathematics while grizzled newshounds continually implore them to find real jobs.

But occasionally these divergent classes unify in appreciation of a truly special talent whose stellar baseball acumen melds seamlessly with his raw physical skill.

Pedro Alvarez had three hits but the Pirates left 13 men on base and fell 5-1 to the Orioles in the first game of their doubleheader at Camden Yards on Thursday afternoon.

Baltimore, MD—If one theory was proved Thursday, it was that base-runners prove ineffective when they don't score.

Charlie Morton (0-3, 4.35) looks for his first win of the 2014 season when he faces Baltimore's Chris Tillman (3-1, 3.38) in the first game.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
