10:44 p.m.: Nick Evans' single in the 10th scores Ruben Tejada. Mets win, 1-0. Hisanori Takahashi gets his ninth win.

10:31 p.m.: After a leadoff double by Andrew McCutchen in the 10th, Jose Tabata -- hitting .410 with runners in scoring position -- bunts unsuccessfully. McCutchen is thrown out at third base.

10:27 p.m.: Mets and Pirates headed to extra innings scoreless. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it marks the first time the Yankees and Mets have gone to extra innings scoreless in different games on the same day.

9:49 p.m.: Wth the crowd chanting "Du-Da, Du-Da" and Ike Davis and two out in the seventh, Lucas Duda lines out to right field against James McDonald. He's now 1-for-32 as a major leaguer. Game scoreless after seventh. Jesus Feliciano then replaces Duda defensively in left field.

9:32 p.m.: Elmer Dessens replaces Dillon Gee for the seventh. Gee had tossed 106 pitches.

9:25 p.m.: Dillon Gee has tossed six scoreless innings.

9:11 p.m.: Washington Heights product Pedro Alvarez leaves a runner at third base for the second time in the game. This time, he grounds out to second base for the final out of the top of the fifth. Game still scoreless.

8:51 p.m.: Dillon Gee leaves the bases loaded in the fourth when he gets opposing pitcher James McDonald to pop out in foul territory to David Wright. Still scoreless, mid-fourth.

8:40 p.m.: Dillon Gee was 0-for-22 this season at Triple-A Buffalo. After a leadoff double in the third, he's now 2-for-4 as a major leaguer. However, Gee is stranded at third base. Jose Reyes -- questionably -- bunts Gee to third and is awarded a sacrifice. Angel Pagan then flies out to left, too shallow for Gee to tag, and Carlos Beltran strikes out. No score after 3.

8:27 p.m.: Josh Thole walks with one out to push David Wright to second base in the second inning, but Lucas Duda drops to 1-for-30 in his major league career with a flyout to left and the rally stalls when Luis Hernandez follows with a strikeout. No score, headed to the third inning.

7:53 p.m.: Dillon Gee delivers the first pitch to Andrew McCutchen after a 43-minute delay officially.
