The Subway Series continues on Saturday at Citi Field as the New York Yankees look to bounce back against the New York Mets after their third consecutive loss on Friday. (Game Time: 7:15 p.m. ET, TV Schedule: Fox)
The Mets scored all the runs they would need in the first inning Friday, batting around to push five baserunners across home plate before the Yankees could muster three outs. Andy Pettitte settled down after his disastrous opening inning to make it through five more innings without allowing another run, but the Mets had already done enough damage and held on for a 6-4 win.
The Yankees have followed a season-high 10-game winning streak by matching their longest losing streak of the season. The Yankees turn to Ivan Nova on Saturday to stop the bleeding. The righty is an amazing 12-0 over his last 15 road starts.
The Mets counter with Chris Young, who hasn't pitched against the Yankees since 2005. A victory would push the Mets eight games over .500, matching their best mark of the season.
Mets lead the series 1-0
