Mets outfielder Jay Bruce went 3-for-5 with two RBIs to extend his hitting streak to six games in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.
Bruce is hitting .333 with two home runs and seven RBIs since May 21 to raise his batting average by 13 points and his OPS by 38 points.
His two-run double highlighted the Mets' three-run fifth inning that gave the Mets a 5-1 lead. Bruce also doubled in the first inning and singled in the fourth.
His presence was felt in the field as well, as he made a sliding catch to his right to rob Jordy Mercer of a potential extra-base hit to end the sixth inning.
