Russell Martin collects one hit Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Russell Martin picked up one hit Wednesday against the Giants.

The Pirates only mustered four hits against Madison Bumgarner, so Martin was one of the standout performers during the contest. During his last at-bat, the fans chanted for Martin to re-sign with the club during the offseason. The team continued to chant even after Martin flew out. He gave the fans a tip of the cap before going into the dugout. Martin is set to be a free agent during the offseason.

Edinson Volquez surrenders five runs in wild-card loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez took a loss in Wednesday's wild-card game, giving up five earned runs on five hits and three walks in five-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 8-0 defeat against the Giants.

Volquez (0-1) did a fine job through three innings but ran into trouble quickly in the fourth, giving up back-to-back singles before a walk loaded the bases for Brandon Crawford, who smashed a grand slam over the right field wall to put the Giants ahead for good. Volquez was pulled after issuing a walk to start the sixth inning, with the runner coming around to score after the starter had departed. It's a disappointing performance after Volquez posted a 1.08 ERA in five September starts. He hadn't taken a loss since July 21.
