(AP) Russell Martin homered twice, Marlon Byrd also connected and the Pittsburgh Pirates roared past Cincinnati for a 6-2 victory in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night.


In front of a black-clad crowd savoring its first postseason game since 1992, Andrew McCutchen added two hits and reached base four times for Pittsburgh.


Francisco Liriano scattered four hits over seven innings for the Pirates, who will face St. Louis in Game 1 of the NL division series Thursday. Liriano struck out five and walked one to win the first playoff game of his career.


Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto struggled in his third start since coming off the disabled list last month. Cueto gave up four runs in 3 1-3 innings and appeared rattled by a raucous ballpark that taunted him throughout by chanting his name.
