No, he doesn’t wear a ruby-quartz visor to contain the destructive energies produced by his eyes, but Xavier Nady continues to have a fine April, like he so often does. Raise that trade value, X-Man!
The Pirates (8-12) scored all their runs in the 6th thanks to two-out hits from Ryan Doumit and Nady, and it was all they needed. Paul Maholm (1-2) got the win and Matt Capps (S 5) got the save. Ricky Nolasco (1-2) got the loss for the Marlins (12-8).
The Pirates, ever full of hope about winning, host the Cardinals tonight at 7:05pm EDT. They send Ian Snell against Todd Wellemeyer.
