Pirates carry 3 catchers to protect hobbled Martin

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pirates opted for depth at catcher while the San Francisco Giants lengthened their bullpen for Wednesday night's NL wild-card game.

The Pirates carried only nine pitchers on the 25-man roster, adding starters Jeff Locke and Vance Worley as insurance should starter Edinson Volquez falter. Pittsburgh made Chris Stewart and Tony Sanchez active with Russell Martin nursing a tight hamstring. Martin is scheduled to start and bat fourth.

San Francisco placed 10 pitchers on the one-game roster, including Jake Peavy, who would be available if starter Madison Bumgarner gets into early trouble.
