Morning Coffee: Yankees Battle Back to Tie Subway Series

Good morning, and Happy Father's Day to you all, especially to my father.  Time for another Sunday recap.

What looked early like another easy Mets victory turned into the Yankees breaking their three-game interleague losing streak.  The Bombers beat the Amazins 5-3 at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon.  Pinstripe Alley and Amazin' Avenue have more.

Jose Reyes led off the game, like he did last Saturday in Baltimore, with a solo home run.  After the Yanks tied the game in the bottom of the first, the Mets regained the lead in the third, when Jose went yard a second time.  It was Reyes' first multi-homer game since 2008.  However, the Yanks got back those two runs on a Mark Teixiera (he lives!) two-run bomb in the bottom of the third.  Curtis Granderson added a two-run home run in the fourth to give the Yankees a lead they wouldn't relinquish.  Phil Hughes was very good, whereas Mike Pelfrey was merely average.  Joba pitched well in the eighth, and Mariano did what Marianos do in the ninth.

  • Division Watch '10!: The Red Sox beat the Dodgers 5-4, and the Rays beat the Marlins 9-8.  Yanks and Rays remain tied at the top of the division, while the Red Sox are one game back.  In the NL, the Braves hung on to beat the Royals 5-4, and the Phillies gave up a big lead to lose to the Twins 13-10 in extras.  The Mets are a game and a half back of Atlanta in the NL East, but three games up on the third-place Phillies, and one game ahead of the Dodgers in the Wild Card race.
