Pirates get 16 hits in 10-3 romp over Padres

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Jordy Mercer homered and matched a career high with four of Pittsburgh's 16 hits Monday night, leading the Pirates to a 10-3 romp over the San Diego Padres.

Neil Walker added three hits and three RBIs, and Josh Harrison also had three hits to help Pittsburgh win for the ninth time in 13 games.

Charlie Morton (2-7) tied a career best with nine strikeouts in five innings. He allowed two runs and three hits in winning for the first time in five road starts this year.

Three relievers finished the five-hitter after 4 hours, 4 minutes - the longest nine-inning game in Padres history.

Tim Stauffer (2-2) lasted only 2 2-3 innings, his second consecutive disappointing start since being inserted into the rotation because of elbow injuries to Andrew Cashner and Robbie Erlin.
