The Mets scored six runs over the final three innings to pull out a 7-5 win over the Pirates Saturday night in Pittsburgh. The win tied the series at 1-1 and the Mets will try to win the rubber game Sunday afternoon.
Wilson Ramos, who had an RBI single for the Mets’ first run in the first inning, hit a two-run homer in the eighth to put the Mets up, 4-3. Then he delivered a three-run double in the ninth to give the visitors a 7-3 advantage.
Edwin Diaz surrendered a two-run homer in the ninth for the final runs.
Marcus Stroman made his Mets debut but it was a forgettable outing. Staked to a lead before he took the mound, he proceeded to give up two runs in the bottom of the first inning. His final line was 4.1 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB and 3 Ks
