We pillage and plunder we rifle and loot, drink up me ‘earties yo ho. The Pittsburgh Pirates saw the New York Mets starter leave the game in the 3rd inning with an injury then scored 4 quick runs off his replacement to take a 5-0 lead and still lost. Down by 5 in the bottom of the 4th the Mets sent 13 batters to the plate to score 7 runs for the 7-5 lead. Jose Reyes added a solo homer in the 6th for what proved to be a necessary insurance run when the Pirates got single runs in the 8th and 9th innings for the final score of New York Mets 8, Pittsburgh Pirates 7.
We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot, drink up me ‘earties yo ho. The Mets put those 7 runs on the board in the 4th this way. With 1 out Carlos Beltran then David Wright both singled. Ike Davis then doubled to drive in Beltran and put runners on 2nd and 3rd. Nick Evans walked to load the bases. Mike Hessman pinch-hit for catcher Henry Blanco and singled driving in Wright. Ruben Tejada then hit a grounder to 3rd but the throw to force the runner at the plate caromed off the glove of catcher Chris Snyder for an error allowing both Davis and Evans to score. Pinch-hitter Joaquin Arias then reached on an error by shortstop Ronny Cedeno as Hessman scored to tie the game at 5 runs apiece. 1 out later Angel Pagan singled to drive in Tejada and Arias for the 7-5 lead.
