In the team's tenth attempt, the Mets win their first game in franchise history, defeating the Pirates at Forbes Field, 9-1. Jay Hook's five-hit complete game snaps Pittsburgh's record-tying winning streak of 10 games from the start of the season without a loss.
Atlanta teammates Justin and B.J. Upton both hit home runs in the Braves' 10-2 rout of Colorado at Coors Field. It marks the 27th occurrence in major league history that brothers have homered in the same game, but is only the second time it has been accomplished in consecutive at-bats since 1938 when Lloyd and Paul Waner went back-to back for the Pirates.
