Pirates 5 Mets 3 in 14 innings With Some Beatles Music

We had tickets for last night's game as part of our 10-game package.  Jonathan Niese was the starting pitcher who gave up two home runs to Aramis Ramirez and Gregory Polanco to give the Bucs an early 3-0 lead.  Homers to Juan Uribe and Michael Conforto in the 7th inning tied the game which went into extra innings.  The Pirates won the game in the 14th inning with RBI singles by Chris Stewart and Sean Rodriguez.  These extra-inning games really wear out a pitching staff.

As I stated in yesterday's entry the game was played on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles concert at Shea Stadium.  There was no Beatles tribute group outside the stadium by music by the Fab Four was played during the Kiss Cam segment.
