PITTSBURGH -- Expanded instant replay has a new fan in Starling Marte. Dino Ciccarelli Jersey . At least, that is, when the Pittsburgh Pirates are on the right side of it. The speedy outfielder was called out, then ruled safe on a replay review with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Pirates over San Francisco 2-1 Tuesday night and ending the Giants six-game winning streak. It was 1-all when Marte tripled off the right-field wall against Tim Hudson. Marte slid into third, got up and bolted home when the relay from second baseman Ehire Adrianza skipped by third baseman Pablo Sandoval for an error. Sandoval recovered to throw home and plate umpire Quinn Wolcott initially ruled Marte was tagged by San Francisco catcher Buster Posey. A brief review showed Martes right hand touched the plate before Poseys glove swiped Martes chest. Marte joked he likes replay "sometimes" but never doubted which way the call would go one the umpires took a longer look. "I know I was safe," Marte said. "It was just about waiting for the umpire to make the decision." Pirates manager Clint Hurdle raced out of the dugout to challenge the call. He wasnt sure at the time whether Marte was safe for not, but figured Marte deserved the benefit of the doubt. "Its an aggressive play," Hurdle said. "We continue to talk about being aggressive. We cant use the safety brakes." A night after rallying from a six-run deficit to win a five-hour, 13-inning marathon, the Giants were stunned when Martes drive and Adrianzas miscue ruined an otherwise spectacular effort from Hudson (4-2). The veteran right-hander allowed two runs on five hits in 8 2-3 innings, striking out five and walking one. The only Pirate to advance past second base over the final seven innings was Marte. "Replay is going to provide the final conclusion," Hudson said. "It is what it is and youve got to accept it. But its frustrating to be to the end of a call that cost you the ballgame. Ive seen calls that were closer than that but werent overturned." Tony Watson (3-0) worked around two singles in the ninth to earn the win. Marte scored both Pittsburgh runs and Ike Davis added two hits as the Pirates won for just the fourth time in their last 13 games. Pittsburgh starter Charlie Morton pitched eight sparkling innings, giving up one unearned run and three hits, walking two and striking out three. "The pitches he made to the top four hitters, theyre as good as Ive seen him make," Hurdle said. "He had those guys, there were some hard at-bats. There was good pitching. He hit his spots, changed his speed." Both teams were looking for length out of their starters after San Franciscos 11-10 the night before left their bullpens taxed. Going deep into games hasnt been a problem for Hudson, who worked with his typical efficiency while giving the relievers some needed down time. The 38-year-old has thrown at least seven innings in all seven of his starts this season. He had little trouble getting through eight innings, keeping the Pirates off-balance with his typically impeccable control. Marte reached on an infield single with one out in the second and moved to third on a single just inside the first-base bag by Davis before scoring on a groundout by Tony Sanchez. San Franciscos only run came in the second as Sanchezs throwing issues from behind the plate resurfaced. Brandon Belt hit a leadoff single, stole second and moved to third when Sanchezs throw sailed into shallow centre field. Belt scored on Adrianzas sacrifice fly. NOTES: Pirates LHP Wandy Rodriguez was rocked in his second rehab start while recovering from right knee inflammation. Rodriguez, who is eligible to come off the disabled list, gave up seven runs in 5 1-3 innings, striking out four and walking three while surrendering two home runs at Double-A Altoona. ... The Giants called up RHP reliever George Kontos from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday and sent Jake Dunning back to the minors. Kontos had a 4.91 ERA in 18 1-3 innings in Fresno. ... San Francisco LHP reliever David Huff, on the disabled list since April 21 a strained left quad, could begin a rehab assignment at Triple- A Fresno on Thursday. Huff threw 70 pitches in a bullpen session on Monday without any setbacks. ... The series concludes on Wednesday. Tim Lincecum (2-1, 5.12 ERA) starts for the Giants against Gerrit Cole (2-2, 3.69). Mike Gartner Jersey . After overcoming a three-goal deficit the Senators forced the game to overtime only to watch it slip away as Seth Jones scored the winner 3:49 into the extra period as the Nashville Predators defeated the Senators 4-3 Monday night. Antoine Roussel Jersey . - Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery was so busy in free agency he didnt mind having a few extra weeks to prepare for the draft. . The San Angelo, Texas product, who was a high school and college quarterback sensation in the Lone Star State, will start his first CFL game with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-4) on Friday at Mosaic Stadium against the leagues top team, the Calgary Stampeders (11-2).After a nightmare of an MLS season, it was fitting, then, that the Impact, class of 2014, break from a mini post-season camp on the afternoon of Halloween. Like they did at the conclusion of their 2012 season, the club would have much preferred conducting the more meaningful post-season tour - most likely, following Joey Saputo’s considerable investment in Bologna FC, to have travelled to what is now absolutely the club’s spiritual home - Italy. The CBA, though, prevents any clubs in the league from conducting post-season tours. Monday afternoon, following their first post-season training session, the Impact conducted their formal post mortem. This also signalled the final time as a professional footballer that Marco Di Vaio would face the microphone and camera glare and spotlight. Some players used this opportunity to defer responsibility in favour of airing excuses of an MLS season gone pear-shaped. We heard of leadership voids and locker room divisions. Really? Don’t buy it, whatsoever. If leadership voids and locker room divisions were the root causes, then the much better effect would have been to have dealt with them as they occured. Players could have taken the lead of Matteo Ferrari, who hadn’t even caught his breath following the first formal day of training camp in late January, to let the media know his thoughts on the 2014 squad. Laying it all out, the defensive veteran let it be known that he was of the belief the squad was not as strong as 2013’s. Ferrari wondered aloud why key players, who had been lost at the end of the 2013 campaign, had not been replaced in the off season. With long-run predictions like that, a lucrative career in the financial and investments field awaits the 34-year-old Italian when he finally hangs up the boots. We all know now, of course, on an individual player and collective team basis that the Impact were not able to fully grasp coach Frank Klopas’s new system. A pitiful seven-game winless streak to start the season saw them collect only three paltry points from the 21 on offer. There would be no recovery. The club had to wait to the very end of April to record their first victory of the season, a very fortuitous one at that, in a 1-0 victory at home to the Philadelphia Union. By then, 2012’s first-overall pick from the MLS SuperDraft, Andrew Wenger, had been offloaded to the Union, his hometown club. During the rain-sodden match, Wenger had a gilt-edged opportunity to do what he rarely did in an Impact shirt and for what he was paid significant compensation: stick the ball in the back of a Stade Saputo net. Sans surprise, Wenger once more fluffed his lines from right in front of the Ultras. No matter who the Impact shipped in and out during the course of the season, the starting XI rarely played to script. Disjointed and dispirited performances plagued the team most of the MLS season. This all changed when a diminutive 29-year-old Argentine showed up. Although Ignaccio Piatti’s season was severely curtailed by injury, which limited him to appearing in only six league matches, his mere presence in town was enough to spread and provide a proper buoyancy throughout the squad, something of which had been sadly absent until the point Piatti stepped on the pitch in an Impact shirt for the first time in a home match against the Fire. Played on a mid-August Saturday evening, it was no surprise Di Vaio scored the only goal. Also unsurprisingly, torrential rain would yet again feature at a home match. Don’t ever let me hear again someone telling me it always rains in London. Blue skies in the morning and afternoon, come kick-off time, the only brightness in the sky came courtesy of the floodlights. Ultimately, the Impact posted only six wins from 17 home matches, hardly the stuff to instill fear in any opponent on their Stade Saputo travels. As for the Impact’s travels, they go down as one of the worst road records in the leeague’s entire history. Devin Shore Jersey. With a return of only five points gathered, all coming from drawn matches, a winless season on the road is not something for the Impact annals. A trick of an MLS season was more than compensated, though, with the Impact retaining their Voyageurs Cup title. An almost perfect record in the group stages of the CONCACAF Champions League and a first return since 2008 to the knockout stages provided the icing. The mere fact that a Voyageurs Cup and passage through to the final eight of the Champions League were achieved against the backdrop to the 19th franchise in MLS finishing, not only bottom of the Eastern Conference, but with the worst record in the entire 19-club league makes these accomplishments all the more valuable. Much credit for this must go to the much maligned technical staff for dusting off MLS woes and, in doing so, ensuring the players were purely focused on the task at hand. On Monday, we also learned the recipient of the 2014 Giuseppe Saputo Trophy and Andrés Romero was fully deserving of his MVP Award. Week-in, week-out, the 28-year-old Argentine wide-playing attacking midfielder bought a guile, craft and energy to the pitch, which was wanting so often in way too many of his teammates. In late August, the Impact let it be known they were keen on making Romero’s second season-long loan from Tombense in Brazil a permanent deal. Romero, himself, is also keen for this to happen. Another player who should return is the currently soon to be out-of-contract Patrice Bernier. As much as Habs fans might like the concept of the NHL’s most-winningest team going through the season without a captain, I’m not sure the legions of Impact supporters will be too happy if Bernier is not re-signed. Although Bernier did not play to his usual high standards in 2014, when he was supported by a proper cast, we saw more than enough evidence that there is still much more to come from the local lad. In the middle of the month, Bernier told TSN 690 that he absolutely wants to be back in 2015. Just on Wednesday, Impact technical director Matt Jordan disclosed to TSN 690 that contract discussions had indeed commenced. Jordan, though non-committal on disclosing a percentage on Bernier trotting out at Stade Saputo in 2015, certainly sounded optimistic. On the flip side, a player we now know will not be returning is Matteo Ferrari, with the Impact announcing earlier this afternoon that they would be declining his 2015 option. Even for the most down-heartened, there is though much to be upbeat and optimistic about in 2015 when MLS will celebrate season 20. No, I’m not counting when Chelsea legend Frank Lampard brings his new boys in blue up from Yankee Stadium for a visit, or possibly two, to Saputo Stadium. For one, the Impact’s splendid-looking, brand spanking new training facility will open its doors. A significant investment in nurturing and nourishing future talent, the facility will be a home for all of the Impact’s teams from the very youngest all the way up to the senior team. As response to the discontinuation of the MLS Reserve League, early last month, the Impact launched FC Montreal. Amalgamating their current Under-18 and Under-23 sides, FCM will take its bow in the USL Pro league next spring. Long before that, though, 50,000 and more of the Impact brethren will congregate one frigid evening in very early March over at the Olympic Stadium in anticipation of replicating one of the most extraordinary tales in club history. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, punch the words, “Montreal Impact February 25th, 2009” into your search engine. I suggest you bring your F1 and Osheaga ear plugs. It’s going to be extraordinarily loud. See you there.
