Starling Marte homered in his first at-bat back from the disabled list, but the Pirates could not generate any offense besides that, losing 4-1 to the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday afternoon.

Joe Musgrove was nothing short of spectacular in his Pirates debut, throwing even shutout innings and scoring the game-winning run in an 8-1 win over the Cardinals.

Kingham’s third career start got off to a rocky start, allowing three consecutive RBI doubles in the first inning.
