ATLANTA — The National League still hasn't figured out Adam Frazier.

All of Frazier's gifts were on display during his first big-league game in his home state, as the rookie from nearby Athens ignited the stagnant Pirates to a much-needed 5-3 victory against the Braves on Tuesday at Turner Field.

The box score says that Frazier recorded two hits and drove in two runs. But really, he did so much more.
