BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- Pitcher Wandy Rodriguez contributed a two-run homer and RBI single as the Pittsburgh Pirates got 29 hits Tuesday and routed the Toronto Blue Jays 22-5.

   Starling Marte and Jose Tabata each homered and drove in four runs. Marte got five hits and Tabata had four. The Pirates finished with nine extra-base hits.

   In his first at-bat of the spring, Rodriguez hit a full-count fastball from J.A. Happ into the Pirates' bullpen in right field. Rodriguez added his single in an eight-run fourth inning.

   Rodriguez made his final start of spring training, working 4 2-3 innings and allowing three runs on six hits and four walks.

   Matt Tuiasosopo hit a solo home run for Toronto.

   Happ did not help his bid to claim a job in Toronto's rotation. He faced 20 batters in three-plus innings and allowed seven runs and 12 hits.
