Capuano Pitches Mets Past Pirates 7-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Chris Capuano pitched seven innings, Jose Reyes homered and the New York Mets beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Capuano (5-6) allowed three hits and two walks with five strikeouts to win consecutive starts for the first time since April 2007.

Reyes had three hits for his majors-leading 33rd multi-hit game, homering two pitches after pinch-hitter Scott Hairston also did in the ninth. David Murphy and Angel Pagan went 2 for 4 and Carlos Beltran had a two-run single for New York, which has won six of eight.

Kevin Correia (8-5) unraveled late after being perfect through 4 2-3. He missed on a chance to tie for the majors’ lead in victories.
