Video: Russell Martin gets pied in the face after walk-off hit

Russell Martin's RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Pirates to a 1-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers Thursday night.

His reward? A shaving cream pie in the face courtesy of teammate A.J. Burnett.

"I saw it coming and couldn't do anything about it," confessed Martin.

Don't look now but the upstart Pirates now boast the second-best record in baseball at 34-20. The team is looking to post its first winning season in over 20 years. Will they do it?
