MIAMI — When things became testy between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins, Starling Marte kept swinging. And connecting. If the Pirates sought retribution for an inside fastball that sidelined Josh Harrison, Marte provided it by going 5 for 5, including a ninth-inning homer to cap a 7-3 victory Sunday.
