I was not able to watch much of the game last night. I caught a little bit of the middle innings but didn't get to watch the end of this one. I missed a great ending.
Pedro Alvarez tied the game with one out in the bottom of the ninth with the Pirates down 5-3
Then with two outs Starling Marte goes yaya on a 2-1 pitch.
Huge hit for a guy that has been struggling in a big way.
How much does Marte pimp this home run though. Jesus.
The Pirates needed a win in a big way and they got two monster hits.
The Pirates offense went off. 17 hits. They still left 10 guys on base and went only 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position but three players had three hits or more (Andrew McCutchen (3), Neil Walker (3), Marte (4)) and that isn't a bad thing.
