NEW YORK, NY – MAY 14: Masahiro Tanaka #19 of the New York Yankees pitches against the New York Mets during their game on May 14, 2014 at Citi Field in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

(PIX11) — The Yankees signed pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year, $155 million contract after going 24-0 with the Ratuken Golden Eagles of Japan.

And Tanaka has been money this season!

After shutting out the Mets and completing a game for the first time in his MLB career, Tanaka is 6-0.

The Mets put out rookie Rafael Montero for his first career start Wednesday night. Montero pitched well but was charged with the Mets’ 4-0 loss.

The momentum went from the Mets to the Yankees after switching from a hitter- to pitcher-friendly field.

Yangervis Solarte and Mark Teixeira had solo-homers in the win.

Thursday night, Jacob DeGrom will make his first start in a NYM uniform while the Yankees put out Chase Whitley also making his first career start.

With it being Derek  Jeter’s 93rd and final Subway Series game, the Mets are set to give the Captain a gift at the Thursday night game.
