Martinez not helped by extra rest, Cardinals lose to Pirates

ST. LOUIS (AP) Carlos Martinez got some extra rest between starts to rest a tight back. It didn't help.

Pitching for the first time in eight days, Martinez allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings in the St. Louis Cardinals' 9-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Martinez's ERA rose to 3.04, the first time since May it went over 3.00. The Cardinals were also looking to reduce the 23-year-old right-hander's workload that had reached 159 2/3 innings.
