Reds Stun Pirates in 6-5 Comeback Victory

It’s difficult to put into words what happened at PNC Park Friday night. Long story short, the Pirates held a 5-2 lead heading into the ninth inning and lost 6-5 after 10 innings.

Mercer fielded low, and threw it into the stands which gave Ryan Ludwick two bases to advance home and make the score 5-3....

Pirates Notebook: The Most Important Game All Season

Pirates Notebook: A Man with a Plan for Martin

Today, this 18th day of September in 2013, Russell Martin gets an off-day. Normally, Martin would see a day off on day-game following a night game as tomorrow’s 12:35 start will follow tonight’s first pitch at 7:05. In the month of September, following a 0-for-4 outing at the plate last night, Martin is now 4-for-40 in the final unit of the season’s six-month calendar. His batting average now sits at .229, the first...
