Sloppy Mets Suffer Loss Against Pirates

Neil Walker scored on Clint Barmes’ tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied against Johan Santana and the New York Mets for a 5-4 victory Monday night.

Mike McKenry tied it with a two-run homer in the seventh off Santana and Walker made it all the way to third in the eighth when his long drive off Jon Rauch (3-3) glanced off the glove of center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis for an error and rolled to the wall. One batter later, Barmes hit a fly to right and Walker just beat the wide throw from Lucas Duda.

Jared Hughes (1-0) earned his first major league win in relief. Joel Hanrahan worked the ninth for his 10th save.
