THE BRONX (PIX11) — The Mets have now taken six straight games against the Yankees in the Subway series.
The team came into this series struggling on offense but in just two games the Amazins’ have put up 18 runs, adding insult to injury for a Yankee team that just can’t seem to stay healthy. The DL is fillied with perennial all-starts that include the likes of Carlos Beltran, Ichiro Suziki, and C.C. Sabathia just to name a few. But the games must go on.
First inning, both teams picked up exactly where they left off. You think Curtis Granderson is happy to be back in the Bronx?
With one run already across the plate, Granderson belted another one into the seats in right giving the Mets a four nothing lead… For Granderson his second homer in two nights in the Bronx.
But the Yankees answered back in the bottom of the inning. With one run already across, Yankee Catcher Brian McCann hits one to almost the exact same spot as Granderson to make it 4 to 3.
But from there on out it was all Mets. Fast forward to the top of the fifth with the Mets now up 8 to 4 with two men on and Daniel Murphy launches one off Alfredo Aceves that crashes into the foul poll. Mets go up 11 to 4.
The two teams will be back at it again Wednesday as the series switches to Citi Field. Masahiro Tanaka will try to stop the skid for the Yanks as he goes up against one of the Mets top prospect Rafael Montero who will be making his major league debut.
Both teams will go into that game with identical 19 and 19 records. Reporting from Yankee Stadium.
