The Mets beat the Pirates 5-3 yesterday afternoon. They scored five runs early, Jon Niese gave up two in the fourth and one in the fifth, though things could have gone considerably worse if he hadn't gotten out of a bases-loaded jam. And Jeurys Familia threw two perfect innings on only twelve pitches before Jenrry Mejia finished the game with an eight-pitch ninth.
