PITTSBURGH -- Xavier Scruggs had a ball sitting in his locker after his milestone hit in the Miami Marlins latest win.That ball, which Scruggs smashed into the left-field bleachers for his first major league home run, will be given to his father. The two-run shot helped the Marlins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1 Saturday night for their second straight win.It felt great, Scruggs said. Thats the thing that was most important, was just being able to provide something for this team. You can get a hit at any time, but the big hits are the ones that really matter.David Phelps pitched six scoreless innings, Miguel Rojas scored on an error in the third and Ichiro Suzuki doubled down the right field line in the fourth -- for his 3,008th hit in the majors to move into 28th place on the career list -- before Scruggs went deep.Phelps (7-6) allowed two hits and two walks with nine strikeouts while throwing 96 pitches in six scoreless innings in his fourth start of the season. He had not gone more than 5 1/3 innings or thrown more than 90 pitches in his previous three starts.To give us six there, and obviously the zeroes, hes been great, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

My fastball wasnt there in the beginning. I threw a ton of off-speed pitches and when you throw off-speed, you really have to trust it. That really got my arm going. I was able to get back to my fastball and be efficient in later innings.Scruggs, whho went 1 for 3 in his season debut on Friday, had not homered in 65 plate appearances with Miami and St.dddddddddddd.

Harrison had three hits and Mercer had one. Theyre hitting way too far apart so thats minor. Get a bunch of them and maybe something good happens. So, whether you like it or not, their pitcher was better than our offense tonight.Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen inadvertently helped give the Marlins their 1-0 lead in the third when Dee Gordons fly ball clanked out of McCutchens glove for an error that allowed Rojas to score from second base.Harrison, who had three hits, drove in Jordy Mercer with a single to left field in the eighth inning to pull the Pirates to 3-1.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: Pittsburgh placed 3B Jung Ho Kang on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury sustained in Friday nights game.
