Subway Series Recap: Yankees Take Two, Show Who’s Boss

By Unknown author

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.


  • R.A. Dickey pitched six innings, giving-up four hits, one earned-runs, three walks, while striking-out six batters. It was juts his second win in 2011.
  • Dan Murphy’s sole hit of the night was the game-changing run–a solo shot. It was his fourth of the season.
  • Carlos Beltran drew two walks, and poked a single.
  • Fernando Martinez, who was DHing, contributed a in-the-gap double.
  • Justin Turner keeps on impressive. The fire-headed infielder smacked two doubles, and contributed one of the game’s two RBI.
  • Mike O’Connor, Jason Isringhausen, and Francisco Rodriguez combined for three scoreless innings, including zero hits, zero earned-runs, zero walks, and five strikeouts. It was Rodriguez’s fifteenth save in 2011.

METS GAME 2 HIGHLIGHTS (Yankees Win, 7-3):

  • Chris Capuano pitched 5.3 innings, giving-up six hits, six earned-runs, zero walks, and five strikeouts.

  • Justin Turner’s RBI-single put his RBI-streak at seven consecutive games.
  • Jose Reyes went 3-5 with two runs-scored, a double, and his seventeenth stolen-base of 2011.

METS GAME 3 HIGHLIGHTS (Yankees Win, 9-3):

  • Mike Pelfrey pitched six innings, giving-up eight hits, five earned-runs, two walks, and struck-out four batters. It was his fourth loss.
  • Pedro Beato surrendered two earned-runs in just one-third of an inning. They were his first two earned-runs of the season.

  • Fernando Martinez chipped-in two hits, and a run-scored.
