Morning Coffee: Mets Errors, A-Rod Terrors

I was at a Green Day concert last night (great show, too many covers) but the sports world went on. Check it out:

  • The Yankees, on the strength of a three home run, five RBI night from Alex Rodriguez, evened their series with the Kansas City Royals, winning 8-3 last night. Phil Hughes won his 14th game, though he did surrender nine hits and three runs over six innings. Jorge Posada and Curtis Granderson also went yard for the Yankees, who remained two games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays, who won 7-3 over Baltimore yesterday afternoon. Pinstripe Alley has more.

  • The Phillies scored a run at Citi Field for the first time this season, and got their first win of 2010 in Queens, re-paying the favor from last night and shutting out the Mets, 4-0. Roy Halladay went eight shutout innings, giving up only four hits, en route to win number 15 on the year. Pat Misch, faced with the biggest pitching mismatch of all time, wasn't bad, but did give up eight hits and four runs. Only one of the runs was earned, however, as the Mets made three errors - by David Wright, Ruben Tejada and ... uh, Misch. I'll be out on Sunday night at game three of the series, say hey if you see a chubby kid in a Mookie Wilson jersey. Amazin' Avenue has more on the game.

  • Speaking of Green Day, the mega-platinum selling punk rockers will be playing New Meadowlands Stadium at halftime of the Jets Monday night season opener vs. Baltimore on September 13th. They will be joined by the cast of the hit musical based on their album American Idiot for a performance of 2009's 21st Century Breakdown hit single "Last of the American Girls". Slash from Guns N' Roses will perform in the parking lot before the game, and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger will sing the national anthem.

  • The Red Bulls were shutout in Harrison last night by the Los Angeles Galaxy, 1-0. U.S. National Team member Edson Buddle scored the match's only goal. New York remains in second place 20 games into the season, five up on third-place Toronto FC, whom Metro visits next Saturday.
