The Mets looked sharp out of the gate, led by an awesome one earned-run outing by knuckleballer, R.A. Dickey. However, the Yankees didn’t let their cross-town “rival” bask in glory for too long. The Bombers scored a total of sixteen runs between game two and three–even smacking around the previously un-scored-upon Pedro Beato. Considering Beato had a few not-so-kind words to say about the Yankees before the game, it only seemed fitting. The Mets have now sunk to two games below .500.
