PITTSBURGH — Jacob Stallings’ grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning off closer Edwin Díaz rallied the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 9-7 victory over the stunned New York Mets.
Trailing 6-0, the Pirates scored all their runs in the final two innings – five in the eighth and four in the ninth.
Stallings got his sixth career game-ending RBI. It was the third walk-off slam at PNC Park, which opened in 2001.
J.D. Davis hit a pair of two-run homers for New York in his first start since coming off the 60-day injured list, and rookie starter Tylor Megill pitched six scoreless innings.
