Pittsburgh Pirates SP Wandy Rodriguez (hamstring) was able to make his scheduled start Friday, April 19, and he faced the minimum while throwing seven scoreless innings and allowing just one hit in the win. He struck out five batters and did not walk one. "When you see a guy twirling like he did today, there's not any team that's going to put up much against him," manager Clint Hurdle said.
