PITTSBURGH (AP) - Craig Monroe hit a pair of three-run homers
and Ian Snell allowed four hits in seven-plus innings, lifting the
Pittsburgh Pirates to a 10-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on
Saturday.

Monroe homered off Atlanta starter Jo-Jo Reyes (0-1) with two
outs in the sixth inning and off reliever Buddy Carlyle with two
outs in the seventh. It was the fourth multihomer game of the
right-fielder's career and the third time he had six RBIs.

Snell (1-2) walked three, struck out three and benefited from
three double plays. The right-hander was replaced by Sean Burnett
after walking Martin Prado to lead off the eighth.
