|Russell Martin notches two more RBI |

(10/6/13) Pirates catcher Russell Martin knocked in his third and fourth runs of the NLDS in a Game 3 win Sunday over St. Louis.
Martin finished 1 for 3 with a sacrifice fly in the game. Martin's bat has been quiet overall in the NLDS, as he is just 2 for 9 in the series with a pair of singles, but he has made the two hits count. The sacrifice fly was his second of the series as well.
|Russell Martin homers twice for Pittsburgh |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/1/13) Pirates catcher Russell Martin became the second Pittsburgh player ever to club multiple postseason homers as he went deep twice in Tuesday's wild card win at home against the Reds.
In fact, Martin became the first National League catcher with two homers in a postseason game since Gary Carter did it in Game 4 of the 1986 World Series. He helped Pittsburgh win its first playoff game since 1992 to send the team to the National League Division Series against St. Louis.
Martin went 3 for 4 in the game with the two solo homers. He went deep off starter Johnny Cueto in the second inning and went deep again in the seventh.
Coming over to Pittsburgh in the offseason after playing with the Yankees in the playoffs last year, some speculate Martin was the difference maker for Pittsburgh this year. The veteran backstop hit .226 this year with 15 homers, 21 doubles and 55 RBI.
