BRONX, N.Y. (PIX11/AP)– The New York Yankees took the first game of the Subway Series 6-1, ending the Mets’ historic winning streak at 11.

Mark Teixeira hit a pair of two-run homers and Michael Pineda used a biting slider while pitching impressively into the eighth inning to help the New York Yankees claim the Subway Series opener.

Jacoby Ellsbury also connected off Jacob deGrom (2-2) for a third home run to the short right field in the Bronx as the Yankees ended a four-game home skid to the Mets.

Pineda (3-0) allowed five hits and a run in 7 2-3 innings in his longest outing with the Yankees, who won for the seventh time in eight games. The NL East-leading Mets lost in their first game this season against a team outside the division.

On Saturday, Matt Harvey (3-0) takes on C.C. Sabathia at 4 p.m. at Yankees Stadium.
