Sunday's scouting report: Mets at Pirates
• Going into Saturday's game, the Mets led the NL and were third in the majors with 287 walks. Even with all those free passes, the Mets' .672 on-base percentage was third-worst in the league. OF Curtis Granderson was tied for second in the NL with 48 walks. Granderson has drawn 18 walks in June, third-most in the big leagues.
• Over his past seven starts, Bartolo Colon is 6-0 with a 1.58 ERA and a .191 opponents' batting average. He has gotten 39 strikeouts and allowed nine walks over his last 51 1⁄3 IP. He has allowed two or fewer runs in all seven of those starts, which equals the best stretch of his career. Colon has gotten a hit in each of his past two starts. In 2002, Colon put together a career-best four-game hitting streak with Montreal.
Pirates president Frank Coonelly recently received the Southpointe CEO Association's annual World Class CEO award. Coonelly is the 13th winner of the award.
