Yankees Fall to the Mets 2-1
The Yankee bats went quiet once again on Friday night as the Yankees lost game one in their three game Subway Series to the New York Mets two to one.
So what was the good news and bad news for the Yankees in this loss?
Freddy Garcia went seven strong innings for the Yankees as he was the tough luck loser. In those seven innings, Garcia gave up five hits, two runs, two walks, and two strikeouts. The Yankees bullpen was very strong as well as Joba Chamberlain and David Robertson held the Mets in check as each went an inning giving up only one hit and keeping the game at 2-1.
This has been a continuing theme for the Yankees so far as they have been getting quality starts and failing to produce any offense for their starters. Again, on Friday night, the Yankees relied on the long ball to produce as Mark Teixeira hit a solo HR to give the Yankees their only run.
For the Mets it was Daniel Murphy who hit a solo HR and also Justin Turner who had three hits, including two doubles, that led to the other run for the Mets.
Saturday night the Yankees will send to the mound A.J. Burnett and the Mets will counter with Chris Capuano. The series wraps up on Sunday as the Yankees will pitch Ivan Nova and the Mets will send out Mike Pelfrey.
