Mets Lose Early Lead As Jaso Pushes Pirates To Victory

PITTSBURGH (AP) — John Jaso singled home the tying run in the ninth inning and the winning run in the 10th, and the Pittsburgh Pirates overcame Andrew McCutchen’s baserunning blunder to beat the New York Mets 5-4 Saturday night. Jordy Mercer doubled off the center-field wall against Addison Reed with one out in the ninth. Jaso pinch hit for Felipe Rivera, Reed threw a wild pitch and Jaso lined a single, Reed’s second blown save in eight chances. Tony Watson (3-1) struck out Travis d’Arnaud to strand two runners in the 10th, and the Pirates loaded the bases in the bottom half against Tyler Pill (0-1), who made his big league debut. David Freese singled with one out, McCutchen was hit by a pitch and Francisco Cervelli walked. Gift Ngoepe flied out to Jay Bruce in shallow right, and left-hander Josh Edgin came in to face the right-handed hitting Jason, who was 0 for 10 against lefties this season and 1 for 20 last year. With the count full, Jason lined the ninth pitch of the at-bat over Bruce. On manager Terry Collins’ 68th birthday, the Mets blew a save for the fifth time in their last seven chances. New York led 4-2 before McCutchen’s RBI double with two outs in the sixth. Francisco Cervelli grounded into the shortstop hole, where Asdrubal Cabrera went to a knee and prevented the ball from going into the outfield, holding Cervelli to an infield hit. McCutchen kept on running and Cabrera’s throw home beat McCutchen by 25 feet. Jay Bruce, d’Arnaud and Lucas Duda homered off Gerrit Cole, who allowed three homers in a game for the first time in his big league career. Cole gave up four runs and 10 hits in five innings. Duda’s homer was as 451-foot drive to right-center in the sixth; he also doubled and is 9 for 18 with four with four walks in his last five games. Mets starter Zack Wheeler, bothered by a blister on his pitching hand, allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. He gave up a two-run homer to McCutchen in the second that tied the score 2-all. WEB GEMS Mets CF Juan Lagares made a pair of leaping catches, hitting the wall while robbing Cervelli leading off the ninth and Gregory Polanco starting the 10th. UNHAPPY ANNIVERSARY Saturday marked one year since Mets third baseman and captain David Wright last played. He is on the 60-day DL while recovering from surgery to repair a disk in his neck. TRAINER’S ROOM Mets: LF Yoenis Cespedes (strained left hamstring) reported tightness in his right quadriceps on Saturday, a day after beginning a rehab assignment at Class A St. Lucie and the Mets say he won’t play until at least Tuesday. He has been on the disabled list since April 28. Pirates: RHP Jameson Taillon is scheduled to begin a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment Sunday with a start for Double-A Altoona, less than three weeks after undergoing testicular cancer surgery on May 8. . LHP Antonio Bastardo (left quad strain) and RHP Josh Lindblom (left side discomfort), started rehab assignments Saturday at Triple-A Indianapolis. UP NEXT The three-game series concludes Sunday night with Mets RHP Matt Harvey (3-3, 5.36 ERA) facing RHP Tyler Glasnow (2-3, 6.69). Harvey ended a six-start winless streak Tuesday, allowing two runs in five innings against San Diego. Glasnow is 2-2 with a 5.96 ERA in five May starts. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

Chelsea Residents On Edge After Bicycle-Riding Assailant Shot 3 Men Overnight

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A shooting in Chelsea sent three men to the hospital early Saturday morning and now police are on the hunt for the alleged assailant. Authorities say the group of men — each in their 40’s — was standing together outside High End Deli on the 14th Street sidewalk near 8th Avenue around 3:30 a.m. when a stranger on a bicycle opened fire while riding past them.  Two of the men were struck in the chest, while the third was hit in the groin and abdomen according to police. Witnesses described the chaotic early morning violence. Jill Blazi, who lives nearby, told CBS2’s Erin Logan she heard multiple gunshots. “I heard about 10, 12 maybe. I was asleep so I didn’t really think anything of it,” she said. “I just thought it was a regular occurrence, like I said — fireworks or something, or maybe a car backfiring.” For 12 hours, investigators combed the scene, finding at least 12 shell casings, blood, clothing and a shoe, Logan reported. Jennifer Crawford also heard the gunshots. “We came in from Washington, D.C., we’re staying here, we were sound asleep. We woke up and I heard five gunshots. It woke myself up, me and my family,” she said. “I could see someone who was on the ground. I could see people around that person who was on the ground.” “I was in the shop and heard four to five shots, I came out to see a guy on the ground and a black Suburban SUV running off from the scene,” another witness said.  Police say that SUV, which sped off, transported two of the victims to Bellevue Hospital Center. The third victim, who witnesses say was conscious at the time, remained at the scene and was later transported to the hospital by medics. All three men are expected to survive, according to police. As CBS2’s Ali Bauman reports, 14th Street remained shut down 8th and 9th Avenue for much of Saturday morning as investigators searched for evidence to help track down their two-wheeled suspect. Meanwhile, residents say this is not a regular occurrence in their neighborhood. “It’s very, very safe and family oriented,” Blazi said. All three men are expected to survive, according to police.

Wood Strikes Out 10, Dodgers Blank Rockies

DENVER (AP) — Alex Wood struck out 10 in six innings and drove in a run with a well-placed bunt on a squeeze play, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Colorado Rockies 4-0 on Saturday night. Brett Eibner supplied additional offense with his first home run of the season and Austin Barnes and Justin Turner added RBI doubles for the Dodgers, who won their 100th game at Coors Field, the most by any visiting club. Wood (4-0) fanned at least one batter in five of his six innings and struck out the side in the third en route to reversing a dismal history at Coors, where he had gone 0-2 with an 11.25 ERA in four previous starts. He has 21 strikeouts in his last two starts, fanning a season-high 11 last time out in beating the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. The Rockies, shut out at home for the second time this season, had five hits off Wood, all singles. They had no better luck against relievers Josh Fields, Pedro Baez and Kenley Jansen, who combined to throw three innings of two-hit ball. A couple of sparkling defensive plays by the Dodgers also hemmed in the Rockies, whose NL West-lead over Los Angeles dwindled to one-half game. First baseman Cody Bellinger turned an unassisted double play in the sixth, spearing Carlos Gonzalez’s line drive and catching Nolan Arenado, aboard with a walk, off the bag. With a runner on second in the eighth, third baseman Turner ranged to his left to snag Arenado’s line drive before it could get through the hole. A frustrated Arenado pounded his bat into the dirt after Turner made the play. Tyler Anderson (2-4) had eight strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings but the Dodgers managed to make solid contact when they did connect. Five of their seven hits went for extra bases, including Eibner’s homer leading off the fifth that soared into the stand of evergreens beyond the wall in center field. TRAINER’S ROOM Dodgers: 2B Logan Forsythe, sidelined since April 19 with a right toe fracture, ran the bases Saturday and was slated to move on to a rehab assignment next Tuesday. Rockies: C Tony Wolters, placed on the 7-day DL with a concussion May 3 after being struck in the head by the back swing of a bat in San Diego, has begun his rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque. He caught six innings against Nashville and was 1 for 4 with a home run as the designated hitter for Albuquerque on Saturday night. … CF Charlie Blackmon was not in the starting lineup for the first time this season as manager Bud Black decided to give him a break. “I thought it was the right day to give him a night (off) from starting.” Blackmon remained available for pinch-hitting. UP NEXT Dodgers: LHP Julio Urias (0-0, 1.06 ERA) is making his fourth start of the season and looking to break through for his first win. Rockies: Rookie RHP Antonio Senzatela (5-1, 2.86 ERA) has pitched at least six innings in all four of his starts at Coors Field, winning three. He’s facing the Dodgers for the first time in his career. Read More » USA, LLC
