The Mets attempt to avoid the series sweep Sunday in Pittsburgh. All-Star Taijuan Walker takes the mound for New York.

A Pirates walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning is how Saturday night’s matchup concluded. This came after the Mets were up 6-0 heading into the eighth.

New York has dropped two straight to commence the second half of the season and will look to avoid the sweep Sunday afternoon.
