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

#Reds win 11-4 (Photos and Highlights)

Reds cruise after early strike
A seven-run third inning sent the Reds on the way to a rout of the Pirates and made things easy on Alfredo Simon, who became the NL’s first 10-game winner on a night that saw a historic hit from Gregory Polanco, a rain delay and a mound appearance by Travis Snider.

On a side note; I bet Snider will remember striking out Votto for the rest of his life and that should give him something to talk about for many years to come. Cozart walked, Hoover walked at his first career at bat and Hamilton hit while Votto struck out swinging.
