May 26, 2004
The Pirates' 10-4 victory celebration over the New York Mets at Forbes Field was subdued after shortstop Gene Alley was hit by a pitch on the side of the head in the fourth inning. Alley needed nine stitches but was expected to be out only a couple of days. The Pirates had a 6-0 lead when Alley was hit and extended that advantage to 9-0 by the fifth.
Roberto Clemente went 3 for 5, drove in two runs and scored once. He threw out Mets left fielder Ron Swoboda at the plate after Swoboda tried to score from first on a double.
The Pirates (66-46) raised their lead to 1 1/2 games over the second-place San Francisco Giants (66-49).
