Patiently waiting: Martin takes for team
In the 12th inning of a game delayed by rain and kept alive by Devin Mesoraco’s homer in the ninth, Russell Martin drew a bases-loaded walk to send the Pirates home winners. Jeff Locke is still winless despite a quality start, and Gregory Polanco extended his hit streak to nine. Source

Should be interesting.
Didi playing everywhere!
This seemed to take forever to get the call but this is something that will happen a lot in the near future as they work out all the kinks in these rules.
Frazier does very well in the field. His power at the plate this season has been a lot of fun to watch too.
We recently shined the lights on the fact Todd Frazier is being totally ignored in the latest All-Star game voting.
So as UTNL continues to prop the “Todd Father” up, it’s worth pointing out Frazier is playing some pretty sound third base. This is only worth mentioning because there was a time a lot of us wondered if Frazier would be able to handle playing the hot corner.
With a UZR of 2.0, Frazier has proved he can handle the workload, and is ranked No. 6 defensively among all third basemen in baseball by the Fan Graphs. Frazier has six errors in 164 chances, with a .964 fielding percentage.
Frazier also finished 2013 in the No. 6 spot, so it’s safe to say, the club has good glove at one of the toughest defensive spots on the field.
Hamilton has been doing great this season. Always fun to watch play.
