Morning Coffee! Yankees, Mets Fall Short

Good morning, New York/New Jersey-area sports fans! Here's your first look at the regional sports scene on this first sleepy Monday morning.

↵

MLB: Had to have a little feeling of deja vu watching Josh Beckett of the Boston Red Sox dominate the New York Yankees Sunday night in a 4-0 victory. Yankee fans have seen that before. They are not used to watching CC Sabathia struggle, though, and the big lefty did in 5.2 so-so innings. Boston took two of three in the series at Fenway Park.

Sunday was also frustrating for the New York Mets, who wasted seven brilliant one-run innings from starting pitcher Chris Young in a 7-3, 11-inning loss to the Washington Nationals.

NBA: Amare who? With Amare Stoudemire sidelined by an ankle injury, Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points -- including the game-winning jump shot, as the New York Knicks won their seventh straight game Sunday night, edging the Indiana Pacers, 110-109.

NHL: The New York Rangers will face the Washington Capitals in the opening round of the NHL playoffs. SB Nation New York has the series schedule for you.

MASTERS TOURNAMENT: Sunday's final round of The Masters provided great theater. A tremendous charge from seven shots back by Tiger Woods. A tough-to-watch implosion by young Rory McIlroy. An incredible number of players with a shot to win entering the final few holes. Finally, four straight birdies by some guy named Charl Schwartzel no casual golf fan had ever heard of prior to the weekend to finish off the tournament and win the Green Jacket.
