PITTSBURGH (CBS/AP) — Starling Marte was called out, then ruled safe on a replay review with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Pittsburgh 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.

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 Marte’s right hand touched the plate before Posey tagged his chest.

Tony Watson (3-0) worked one inning. Marte scored both Pittsburgh runs and Ike Davis added two hits.

Hudson (4-2) allowed two runs on five hits in 8 2-3 innings, striking out five and walking one.
