But Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 Saturday night with a home run and two runs batted in to propel the Pirates (56-36) to a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets (40-50), and back to 20 games over .500 in front of 39,173 fans—the largest PNC Park crowd to-date this season.

McCutchen hit a game-tying solo home run in the sixth inning off reliever David Aardsma, and later drove in the eventual game-winning run in the seventh inning with a single that glanced off the gl

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford made his Major League debut in May 2011 and promptly launched a grand slam, becoming just the sixth player in history to hit a grand slam in his first game.

The 26-year-old former UCLA Bruin earned the starting job last season and drove in 5 runs in the Giants NLCS victory over the Cardinals en route to winning the World Series.
