PITTSBURGH -- Starling Martes precocious talent can sometimes get him in trouble at the plate. Balenciaga Speed Trainer White . The Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder can be in such a hurry to get on base, his bat tends to get ahead of itself. A well-timed piece of advice helped him break out of a slump on Wednesday against the San Francisco Giants. Told by several teammates to wait a beat longer before swinging, Marte slapped a career-high four hits and scored four times as the Pirates pulled away for a 12-8 victory. "I think you know it goes back to pitch selection, seeing the ball up, trying to maintain discipline throughout the at-bat," manager Clint Hurdle said. Something Marte lacked at times during a recent swoon following his scorching start. Marte began the night in the midst of an 11 for 60 (.183) slump before pecking away at San Franciscos Barry Zito (4-5). The 24-year-old leadoff man hardly seemed bothered by a run-in with San Francisco reliever George Kontos on Tuesday night, when Kontos threw behind Marte at one point in apparent retaliation for Pittsburghs Tony Watson hitting Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro. "Whatever happened yesterday was yesterday," said Marte, who added two stolen bases to push his season total to 20. "I didnt think about it. Everybody wants to do their job. The pitchers have to do their job. Thats how I got focused today." Marte, Mercer and McCutchen combined to go 8 for 9 against Zito as the Pirates won for the fourth time in their past five games. Neil Walker and Alex Presley both homered for Pittsburgh, which set season highs for runs and hits (18). "It was a very good night for our offence to show up on a night it was challenging for everybody off the mound," Hurdle said. Francisco Liriano (5-2) survived six erratic innings to pick up the win. Joaquin Arias knocked in three runs for the Giants and Hunter Pence doubled twice but San Francisco continued to struggle on the road. The defending World Series champions have lost 12 of 16 away from home. Zito (4-5) allowed eight runs and 11 hits in 4 2-3 innings as his road ERA ballooned to 11.28. He is 4-1 with a 1.94 ERA at AT&T Park. "At home, Ive caught some breaks and kept stuff done in the zone and I havent on the road," Zito said. "Ive felt pretty good in some of these starts out on the road, but I just havent been able to get people out." A night after Pittsburgh lit up San Francisco in an 8-2 win in support of rookie pitcher Gerrit Cole, the Pirates kept it going. McCutchen hit a two-run double in the third as the Pirates took a 4-1 lead. The Giants responded to briefly tie the game on a two-run double by Arias in the top of the fifth. It didnt stay knotted long. Marte and Mercer led off the bottom of the inning with consecutive singles. Marte scored on a fielders choice and Pedro Alvarez chased Zito for good with a double off the wall in right. Walker greeted reliever Jose Mijares with a two-run single and the Pirates were in control. "The top of the order was really special tonight, the runs, the hits," Hurdle said. "They just kept fueling us from the first inning through the eighth." Pittsburghs lead grew to 10-4 after Presleys pinch-hit homer and an RBI double by Gaby Sanchez, but the Giants hung in there on a night manager Bruce Bochy watched from the clubhouse. Bochy was suspended one game and reliever George Kontos was suspended three games and fined after Kontos threw at Marte then hit McCutchen in the rear on Tuesday. Kontos was sent down to Triple-A before the suspension was announced. Bench coach Ron Wotus stepped in for Bochy and pointed to the late surge as evidence the Giants are starting to get things going. "They prevailed but we at least kept battling and we had a nice little breakout on offence," Wotus said. San Francisco pulled within 11-8 after Buster Poseys two-run single off Watson in the eighth but Sanchez doubled in McCutchen in the bottom of the inning. Closer Jason Grilli worked a perfect ninth in a rare non-save situation. Liriano lacked the firepower of his past two starts, when he combined for 19 strikeouts. The left-hander struck out just two and walked three while tying his season high with four runs allowed. NOTES: Walkers fifth home run of the season was originally ruled a double but overturned when replay showed the ball struck a seat in the first row of left field stands ... Cole, who went 6 1-3 innings in his major league debut on Tuesday, will start again on Sunday when the Pirates host the Los Angeles Dodgers. ... San Francisco 2B Tony Abreu went 3 for 5 in his first start of the season. Abreu started in place of Scutaro, who is out indefinitely with ligament damage ... Bochy said injured 3B Pablo Sandoval had a "hop in his step" the day after being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained tendon in his left foot. Sandoval was hitting .289 at the time of the injury ... Pittsburgh RHP Charlie Morton makes his first start since having Tommy John surgery a year ago on Thursday when he starts in the series finale.

The Stars unveiled a new logo on Tuesday with a redesigned jersey heavy on the green that retired franchise icon Mike Modano donned after the Minnesota North Stars made him the top overall draft pick in 1988. Modano, who spent 20 of his 21 seasons with the franchise that drafted him, was wearing No. 9 again when the team celebrated the new look by announcing that his number will be retired when the Minnesota Wild visit Dallas on March 8. "Its a good colour," said Modano, the highest-scoring U.S.-born player in NHL history, who is now a franchise consultant. "No one else has it. Thats the way it was with the North Stars. Its kind of unique and different. It shows good on TV. When you see it, you know its us." The Stars had a darker shade of green when they moved to Dallas in 1993, but drifted toward a base of black and white through the years. Now they have combined the two greens from their history to come up with what they are calling "Victory Green" -- a choice made among more than 250 options considered. The move back to the franchises Minnesota roots is coming with a bunch of other changes. The Stars have a new general manager in Jim Nill, who said Tuesday he is "very close" to naming a new coach after he fired Glen Gulutzan. Under NHL realignment, Dallas will be in a division mostly with teams in the Central time zone for the first time. That means fewer of West Coast start times than they had in the Pacific Division. The Stars also said they will hold training camp in nearby Fort Worth and play preseason games in San Antonio and Oklahoma City. "Our organization iss committed to growing the game of hockey across Texas, and partnering with Fort Worth is a first step in this endeavour," team president Jim Lites said.

The logo is a nod to the franchises 20 years in Dallas because the star has a shape similar to the one that stood alone under "Dallas Stars" on the most popular jersey from the teams Stanley Cup championship season in 1998-99. On the front of the new jersey, a big "D" sits on top of the star, while the sleeves have the logo with "Dallas Stars" in a circle around it. Stars owner Tom Gaglardi said the team considered Texas colours -- particularly blue since its a prominent colour for the other pro sports teams in the Dallas area -- but decided too many NHL teams had some combination of red, white and blue. "I think green was important because it was in our history and in our DNA," Gaglardi said. "We were worried we would just blend in with so many other teams. We realized we had the ability to own our own colour across the league." The new look coincides with the team trying to end an unprecedented five-year stretch without a trip to the playoffs. The Stars won a playoff series their first season in Dallas, but it took them about four years to become championship contenders. There is more work to do this time, but Nill thinks that is a reasonable time frame. One of the centerpieces of the rebuilding effort, high-scoring forward Jamie Benn, was the other jersey model alongside Modano. "Were not as far away as people think," Nill said. "But in todays game, youre not far away either way. I dont think were far away, but we have some holes to fill, and if we dont, were going to be farther away than we thought."
