The Mets are pitching great this season and Davey Johnson is waiting for the offense to come around. The Pirates are starting to come back down to earth after a fast 2 weeks.
Jose DeLeon of the Pirates and Ron Darling of the Mets were locked in a pitchers dual. Both looked sharp and were aided by the doubleplay. The Pirates would turn 2 and the Mets turned 3.
The Pirtaes open the scoring in the 3rd when Orsulak singles and Ray draws a walk. Kemp then singles and Orsulak races home for a 1-0 Pirate lead. That is where the score would stay until the 7th. Strawberry ties the game with a solo homer. Santana singles with 2-outs, Darling singles and Backman singles to score Santana and the Mets have a 2-1 lead. Jesse Orosco sets down the PIrates in order in the 9th for his 3rd save.
The Final Score 2-1 Mets
