MIAMI – Justin Bour drove in six runs with four hits, both career highs, and the Miami Marlins rallied from a three-run deficit to end a four-game losing streak by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-3 Sunday.
It was the perfect ending to the afternoon that included the Marlins commemorating Ichiro Suzuki's three-thousandth hit by presenting him with a special collage that featured photos of every one of his three-thousand hits.
Ichiro reached the milestone last season.
Bour improved his batting average from .184 to .222. He had an RBI double in the second, an RBI single in the fourth, a two-run single in the fifth and a two-run homer in Miami's six-run seventh.
Bour helped the Marlins avert a series sweep and shake an offensive slump after being outscored 26-8 during the previous four games. They totaled a season-high 15 hits, including three each by Dee Gordon and Marcell Ozuna.
Josh Bell hit a two-run homer for the Pirates, but they were shut out over the final 8 2/3 innings.
