Jordy Mercer hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the ninth inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Wednesday.

The Pirates improved to 48-30 — they are 18 games over .500 for the first time since 1992, their last winning season.

Neil Walker hit a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez to put Pittsburgh ahead in the fourth. Seattle tied it in the sixth on Raul Ibanez’s team-leading 18th home run.

Hernandez pitched well, but came away with a no decision.  He pitched 7 innings, gave up six hits, struck out eleven and gave up only two runs.

The Mariners are off tomorrow. They open a weekend series against the Cubs Friday night at Safeco Field.
