The Mets Beat Pirates 8 - 7 but Almost Blew It

I don't remember going to 3 games in less than a week, but this game was part of our package shortly after our return from Seattle.  I thought it might be a laugher after the Mets took a 6-0 lead in the first inning featured by a 2-run home run by Michael Conforto.  However, the Pirates chipped away at that lead by scoring runs in the third, fourth and fifth inning.  I thought the Mets put the game out of reach by scoring 2 runs in the 6th inning to take an 8-3 lead.  I thought it was safe since a team can not hit a 5 run homer.  In the top of the 9th Met reliever, Tyler Bashlor gave up a 2-run homer to Bryan Reynolds.  Callaway brought in closer Edwin Diaz who yielded another 2-run homer to Jose Osuna to make the score 8-7.  Thankfully, Diaz closed the door at that point to win the game for the Mets.  I thought it would be an oy vey moment for me if the Mets lost.
