Upstart Pirates cap sweep of Marlins

BY foxsports • April 23, 2009

Adam LaRoche can't explain why he's gone from being the majors' worst hitter in April to one of its best. All he wants to do is keep hitting like he's not supposed to during a month he and the Pittsburgh Pirates once dreaded.

LaRoche had four hits and little brother Andy drove in a pair of runs, leading the surprising Pirates to a 7-4 victory over Florida on Wednesday and a three-game sweep of the team with baseball's best record.
