FINAL

NEW YORK METS 5-0 PITTSBURGH PIRATES 

 

The Mets dominated at Citi Field this afternoon, shutting out the Pirates 5-0. A huge day from Mets' pitcher Bartolo Colon helped sealed the fate of the Pirates, who were unable to score any points against his pitching prowess.

Apart from the Mets' two home runs, the Pirates made too many errors on the field, mostly dropped catches, which gave their opponent additional scoring opportunities and prevented them from ever being able to catch up.
