Umps get it right on Jones' HR, Pirates beat Mets

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Garrett Jones hit a three-run homer - a call that was correctly overturned by baseball's beleaguered umpires - and Wandy Rodriguez pitched the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-3 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night.

Jones doubled twice and leadoff man Starling Marte also had three hits for the Pirates, who improved to 4-13 at Citi Field. Pittsburgh had lost 4 of 5 overall, including the opener of this 4-game series Thursday.

Handed an early lead, Rodriguez (3-2) allowed six hits over six innings to win for the first time in four starts. He gave up Anthony Recker's first homer for the Mets but worked around a leadoff double in the fourth and held New York to 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position.
