Worth noting

• After being activated off the disabled list, Russell Martin served his one-game suspension on Thursday and will be back in the starting lineup for Friday night's game against the Nationals.

Martin's suspension stemmed from an April 20 altercation with the Brewers, and it was upheld following a hearing on his appeal.

• On Wednesday, the Pirates were involved in a game in which neither their starter (Wandy Rodriguez) nor the opposition's (Chris Tillman of the Orioles) made it through two innings for the first time in their history. It was also a first in Interleague Play.
