With the scored between the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants tied at 1-1 with 2-outs in the bottom of the ninth Starling Marte sent a drive off the right field wall.

Marte hustled in to third with a triple and when the relay throw escaped third baseman Pablos Sandoval he raced home. Sandoval quickly retrieved the ball and fired to catcher Buster Posey who tagged Marte and home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott  called him out.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle came out of the dugout to challenge the call and after review Marte was called safe to give the Pirates the walk-off victory.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
