PITTSBURGH, June 24 (UPI) -- Ryan Doumit and Jose Bautista both homered Tuesday to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 12-5 victory over the New York Yankees.

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.
