A swing from Kevin Newman slowly dribbled down the third-base line but unbeknownst to pitcher Taijuan Walker, the ball stayed on the chalk of the line, keeping it in play.

Stunned, the Mets did not react but the Pirates did.
John Nogowski, Gregory Polanco, and Michael Perez would all score, giving the Pirates a 6-0 lead in the first inning.
