The Pirates called up outfielder and top prospect Gregory Polanco less than a week ago, and it didn't take long for him to make an impact. He recorded his first career five-hit game on Friday night, capping it off with his first career home run.

It wasn't just any ol' homer though. It was a go-ahead two-run homer in the 13th inning, which ultimately proved to be the game-winner. To the action footage:

Off a tough lefty in Mike Dunn too. Impressive.

As for the baseball, yes, Polanco did get it back, because people in Miami are cool:

Well done by all.
