PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - The New York Mets hit 3 home runs, score 8 off of Joe Musgrove as they rout the Pittsburgh Pirates 13-2 to take 2 of 3 in this weekend series.

Sunday afternoon's game at PNC Park came down to the pitching matchup between Musgrove and Noah Syndergaard as the Mets were able to jump out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and continued to add on throughout the rest of the game.

On the other side, Mets Starting Pitcher Noah Syndergaard was able to keep the Pirates offense in check as he retired 14 consecutive batters from the last out of the 2nd inning to first out of the 7th inning.

The Pirates begin a 3-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at PNC Park Monday night when they send Dario Agrazal (2-2, 3.65 ERA) to the mound against Jordan Lyles (6-7, 5.15 ERA) and the Brewers.
