Russell Martin sitting out Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Russell Martin is not in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Reds.

Martin is likely received a day off so he doesn't have to play in a day game following Wednesday's night game. Martin also received a one-game suspension for his actions during the team's recent dust-up with the Brewers, but he has appealed the ruling. There's no indication Martin has changed course and is taking his suspension Thursday.

Russell Martin resting Thursday against Cubs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Russell Martin has played just two games in a row, but a day game Thursday after a Wednesday night game has him sidelined against the Cubs.

Martin is on a mini-tear. He has four hits in the last two games and smashed two solo home runs Wednesday night. He has recovered from a slow start to raise his batting average to .292.

Pirates trio combines for five solo homers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Pirates managed to score five runs on just five hits Wednesday against the Cubs, and they all came on solo home runs.

Third baseman Pedro Alvarez got the scoring started with his fifth-inning shot, and he followed that up with one more in the ninth. The Pirates also got a two home-run game out of catcher Russell Martin, while Travis Snider added his own longball in the 7-5 loss.

Alvarez now has four home runs on the season, while Snider and Martin both went deep for the first time in Wednesday's game.
