#Pirates OF Starling Marte called his 1st-pitch HR tonite. Well, sort of. "Before the game, I told somebody in the dugout that if (LHP Dallas Keuchel) threw a fastball over the middle, I'd take a hack at it," Marte said. "That's exactly what I did." The ball flew over the LF wall. Keuchel was stunned: "I figured he would take a strike just to see what I got. I never thought he would hit a home run on the first pitch of the game. That's a career first for me."
