Starling Marte LF/CF PIT Apr 24 '13
Starling Marte went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases as the Pirates defeated the Phillies 5-3 on Wednesday.
Marte did it with both his bat and his legs, stealing his fourth and fifth bases of the year before driving in a run with an RBI triple in the ninth inning. The 24-year-old has started the season strong, batting .329 with nine RBI from the leadoff spot in the Pirates' lineup. He's not Harper or Trout, but Marte is showing that he deserves to be in the conversation with baseball's most exciting young outfielders.
