Mets Fall to Pirates in 11 Innings

Jordy Mercer’s single up the middle off Gonzalez Germen drove home Andrew McCutchen with two outs in the 11th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates past the New York Mets 3-2 on Friday night.

McCutchen led off with a walk, stole second and then easily beat the throw home from center fielder Juan Lagares to end the Mets’ four-game winning streak.

Vin Mazzaro (5-2) retired all three batters he faced to earn the victory. Starling Marte had two of Pittsburgh’s six hits, and Pedro Alvarez added his 24th home run.

Mets All-Star David Wright had two hits and extended his hitting streak to 12 games. He had an RBI-single but also flied out with two runners on to end the New York 10th. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit his third homer of the season.

Germen (0-1) got only two outs in his first inning in the majors and took the loss.
