Down 4-0, the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied to defeat the Miami Marlins 5-4 in 10 innings today. Russell Martin drove in teammate Josh Harrison with the game-winning run in the bottom of the tenth and received the traditional towel full of shaving cream in the face from teammate A.J. Burnett.

The Pirates are now 70-44, just 12 wins away from their first winning season in two decades. Yes, two decades. Who would've thunk it?
