Neil Walker went 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored during the Pirates' 6-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.
Walker is now 12-for-30 (.400) with a home run, 10 RBI, and seven runs scored over his last eight games. In addition, he has reached base safely in 22 of his last 40 plate appearances and leads all National League second baseman in home runs with seven and is second to Anthony Rendon in RBI with 22.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
