Marte's Walk Off HR Gives Pirates 6-5 Win

The Pirates ended a three-game losing streak by beating the Blue Jays 6-5 Friday night.  The Pirates entered the bottom of the 9th inning down 5-3.  Neil Walker led off the inning with a single.  Two batters later Pedro Alvarez smashed a two-run home run, his 7th of the season, to tie the game 5-5.  The next batter, Starling Marte, hit the walk off game winner to give the Bucs their first win since last Saturday at St. Louis.
