May 22, 2012 at 10:02 PM   |   Comments

PITTSBURGH, May 22 (UPI) -- R.A. Dickey struck out 11 batters over seven innings Tuesday and the New York Mets scored a pair of late runs to edge Pittsburgh 3-2.

Dickey (6-1) turned in his sixth straight start without a loss, using his knuckleball to baffle the Pirates on five hits without issuing a walk.

Frank Francisco picked up his 11th save for New York, which evened its three-game series with Pittsburgh.

The Mets grabbed the lead in the eighth off Juan Cruz (1-1) when Lucas Duda chased home Mike Baxter with a ground single off the glove of diving first baseman Garrett Jones, breaking a 1-1 tie.

New York added the eventual winning run when Kirk Nieuwenhuis came home after third baseman Pedro Alvarez misplayed Daniel Murphy's grounder.

Andrew McCutchen drove in a pair of runs for the Pirates.
