Lucas Duda hit two home runs on Friday for the second time this season and is now tied with Ed Kranepool for 10th place on the Mets' all-time home run list.
Duda hit a two-run shot in the second inning, then blasted a solo shot in the Mets' five-run fifth inning. Duda hit both of his home runs off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole, who allowed seven runs in five innings.
The 31-year-old now has six homers in his last nine games and is hitting .372 in his last 11 games.
Duda, who has spent his entire career with the Mets, has 135 career home runs and 362 RBI dating back to his debut in 2010. He hit a career-high 30 home runs in 2014 and hit 27 in 2015, but only hit seven home runs in an injury-shortened 2016 campaign.
Duda is hitting .270 with 10 home runs and 21 RBI for the Mets this season.
