News: Martin bashed his seventh homer Saturday -- a three-run shot -- against Milwaukee, going 2-for-4 with a walk and three RBI. Impact: The home run total may be down -- Martin averaged 18 dingers over the last three years -- but a .288 batting average is his best since 2007, when he finished with a .293 mark. The Pirates have gone out of their way to keep the catcher from wearing down, and it's paying dividends.(RotoWire, )
