Everything continues to go right for the host Bucs.

Pirates catcher Russell Martin slugged a deep solo home run to left field in the bottom of the seventh inning off of the Reds’ latest relief pitcher, Logan Ondrusek, moving Pittsburgh to a 6-1 lead in this National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park.

It was Martin’s second solo shot of the evening.

Pirates starter Francisco Liriano is out after firing seven innings of one-run ball on just 90 pitches. He surrendered only four Cincinnati hits, issued only one walk and tallied five strikeouts in a performance that will be remembered in the Steel City for ages.

Cincinnati will need a late offensive charge to get back in this. To the eighth inning we go.

    Nice to see Martin doing well. Hope he keeps it up against St. Louis.
