The Steelers were able to set the tone by scoring first in Sunday’s win. It looked like they were determined to establish the run game early, unlike last week’s loss where they had to abandon the run game and turn into a one-dimensional passing team.

Paul Byron added a pair of goals, leading Montreal, who never lost the lead in a convincing 5-1 thrashing of the Penguins at PPG Paints Arena Saturday night.

This was the second time Wacha had a no-hit try broken up in the ninth.

The promising young Pirates right-hander put it all back together Friday night.

After being one of the most consistent reliever cores from mid-April to mid-May, the Pirates’ bullpen has been struggling mightily of late, recording a 6.47 ERA since May 19.

It's what happened in between that could have a carry-over effect for the NL Central rivals.

Leading 4-3 in the eighth, reliever Michael Feliz got himself into trouble immediately with a bloop single and two walks to open the inning.

Marte’s first inning moonshot over the center field bullpens should put any doubts that the right oblique that landed him on the 10 day DL is feeling better.
