MIAMI (AP) Jung Ho Kang has doubled leading off the seventh inning for Pittsburgh's first hit against Miami Marlins pitcher Wei-Yin Chen.

The left-hander from Taiwan had retired 13 straight batters Thursday night before Kang doubled to center field. Chen then walked Chris Stewart and was pulled from the game with Miami leading 3-0.

Chen threw 64 of his 100 pitches for strikes. He walked three and struck out five.

Chen hit a batter with a pitch and walked two in the second inning. He became the second consecutive Marlins lefty to hold the Pirates hitless into the sixth inning; Adam Conley did it Wednesday night before Andrew McCutchen singled in the sixth.

Miami center fielder Ichiro Suzuki turned in two impressive defensive plays to prevent hits. Suzuki made a diving catch on pitcher Juan Nicasio's fly ball in the second and a leaping catch against the wall on Kang's drive in the fourth.
