The Yankees were playing in Pittsburgh for the first time since the Pirates beat them in the seventh game of the 1960 World Series on a ninth-inning home run by Bill Mazeroski. Mazeroski's blow is the only Game 7-ending homer in World Series history.
Doumit finished 3-for-5 with a pair of runs batted in for the Pirates, who pounded out a season-high 19 hits en route to beating the Yankees for the first time in regular-season play. Adam LaRoche also went 3-for-5 with two RBI, and Freddy Sanchez was 3-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored.
Tom Gorzelanny (6-6) allowed three runs on six hits in six innings for the win.
