Starling Marte had three hits and stole a pair of bases, propelling the Pirates to a 5-1 victory over the Braves on Tuesday.

Marte finished the night 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and two stolen bases. The impressive 23-year-old rookie outfielder is hitting .264/.307/.448 with five homers, 17 RBI and 12 stolen bases through his first 46 MLB contests. In all likelihood, he'll enter the 2013 campaign as the Bucs' opening day left fielder and leadoff hitter.
