The victory extends the Pirates winning streak to five and improves their record to 70-44, tops in the majors.

The Marlins took a 4-0 lead in the fifth on rookie Christian Yelich’s first career home run, a two-run shot. But the Pirates battled back and tied it in the seventh, when Starling Marte scored on a sac fly from Gaby Sanchez.
