After terrific Tuesday game, Mets look to best Yanks with rookie pitcher
NEW YORK (PIX11) – The Mets had another terrific night hitting Tuesday versus the Yankees scoring a season-high 12 runs in a 12-7 win.
This is now six straight for the Mets versus NYY and they are en-fuego right now.
If they play like this in every game, they could be an elite team.
The Mets had some great performances:
Eric Young Jr. scored three runs despite zero hits on the night.
Daniel Murphy went 1-3 with two runs, a three-run homer and another RBI to make it four.
David Wright went 3-5 with two runs and two RBI’s.
Curtis Granderson is rocking against his former team in this series. Tuesday night he went 2-3 with a three-run bomb with two runs and walks.
Juan Lagares went 1-4 with one hit, RBI, and run.
Lucas Duda went 2-4 with a RBI and Ruben Tejada went 2-4 with two runs and a RBI.
It’s nice to see the Mets have a total of six players drive in a run Tuesday night. Zach Wheeler pitched well, going 4.1 innings and pitching a career-high. He let up five runs and got two K’s.
Wheeler’s improvement is coming.
Daisuke Matsuzaka finally got his first relief win of the season, striking out four batters and letting up just one run.
Vidal Nuno took the loss for the Yankees, giving up seven runs (five earned) and striking out a single Met.
Alfredo Aceves just made matters worse for the Yankees coming in for Nuno’s relief and letting up four runs.
The Yankees only had catcher, Brian McCann, in his hitting groove when he went 3-4 with a homer and three RBI’s.
Yangervis Solarte also homered.
Wednesday night’s game will be fun with two rookie pitchers on the hill. For the Yankees, big money catch this offseason Masahiro Tanaka will try to improve his 5-0 record and continue to upset offenses while Rafael Montero will make his first career start in the big leagues in a big game.
Hopefully the Mets can continue to hit well and Montero will be a great star.
