Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - The battling Bucs did it again.
Pinch-hitter Russell Martin's game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th
inning led the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-4 victory over the Miami Marlins to
complete a three-game series sweep.
Martin is responsible for four of Pittsburgh's nine walk-off wins this season.
The Pirates trailed 4-0 heading into the home fifth, but plated a pair in that
frame and two more in the seventh to whittle away the deficit before pushing
across the winning run in the 10th.
Josh Harrison led off the bottom of the 10th with a single against Steve Ames
(0-1) and advanced to second on Clint Barmes' sacrifice bunt. Jose Tabata then
grounded out and Starling Marte was intentionally walked to bring up Martin,
who poked a ground ball down the third-base line to plate Harrison.
