Description: Pirates outfielder Starling Marte hit a line drive solo home run to right field for the Pirates only run in the, 7-1, loss to the Reds on Tuesday.
Insight: Marte was 1-for-2 with the solo bomb that was just a bullet to right, but Pittsburgh can't get any offense going. They have scored one run in each of their last four games, all losses. The Pirates have picked a bad time for the offense to stop hitting as they have dropped six of the last seven to division rivals. Marte is hitting .264 with seven home runs and 18 RBI in 91 at-bats this season.
