Andrew McCutchen delivered a game-tying home run in the fifth, then knocked in the go-ahead score an inning later to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates over the New York Mets, 4-2, on Saturday.
Pittsburgh has taken the first two tilts of this three-game set, both by breaking through against New York's bullpen.
Greg Burke (0-2) issued a pair of singles in the seventh before McCutchen's base hit broke a 2-2 tie. Russell Martin later drew a walk with the bases loaded to cap the frame.
Three Pirate relievers combined for 3 1/3 innings of one-hit ball, with Justin Wilson (6-1) picking up the victory after taking over for starter A.J. Burnett, who struck out eight and gave up two runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 frames.
Marlon Byrd scored once and knocked in a run to account for New York's only offense.
