Marte went 4-for-5 in the Bucs' 12-8 victory Wednesday night, jacking his average 10 points, to .289.
It was an overall historic performance for Marte, who also scored four runs and stole two bases.
He became the first leadoff hitter for the Pirates since 1916 to put together that offensive line and the third to do it regardless of batting order position. The others were Adrian Brown on June 11, 2000, and Andrew McCutchen on May 14, 2010.
