Edinson Volquez pitched another gem Thursday night, yielding one hit in seven shutout innings to lead the Pirates to a 7-0 win against the Miami Marlins at PNC Park.

Gregory Polanco went 2 for 4, drove in four runs and made a play from right field that would have made his long-ago predecessors proud.

The Pirates were riding another excellent start by Volquez when they busted out for three runs in the fourth, getting an RBI single from Russell Martin and a two-run, bases-loaded single from Polanco.

The Marlins quickly threatened in the fifth, when Volquez walked Jarrod Saltalamacchia with one out, then surrendered his first and only hit to Donovan Solano. That put Marlins at first and second.

Adeiny Hechavarria hit a pop fly to foul territory in right, where Polanco caught the ball at the railing. He then planted his feet and fired to Jayson Nix to double off Saltalamacchia who had tagged up and headed for third. The spectacular double play shut down the Marlins' only threat until the ninth.

"You have to prepare. I didn't know he [was] going to run. I heard [second baseman] Michael [Martinez] yelling 'he tagged, he tagged,' so I just threw it," said Polanco.

Inspired and led by Polanco and Volquez, the Pirates (61-53) collected their second consecutive win without several of their star players and a short bench.
