Yankees Top Mets

Behind an impressive effort from Phil Hughes, and another hefty power display, the Yankees took the second game of the Subway Series 4-2.

It was a pitcher’s duel from the Bronx Saturday night, as both Phil Hughes and Met starter Dillon Gee were on their A-games.  Gee, after taking an inning to settle in, allowed three runs through seven innings, while Hughes lasted six and a third giving up only two runs – he kept the Yankees in the game until their offense could pull them to the win.

Such an offensive display came from the ever-improving bat of Mark Teixeira, who belted a two run home run in the bottom of the sixth with the Yanks down 2-1.  From there, the Yankee bullpen took over, pitching three and two thirds of scoreless, two hit ball and, with the help of a Curtis Granderson solo home run in the eighth, secure the 4-2 win.

Hughes gets said win, improving to 6-5 on the year with Gee the undeserving loser.  Soriano came on for the save, his ninth of the year.  The win claims 2012’s first installment of the Subway Series for the Yankees, and sends them into Sunday’s afternoon game looking for the sweep.  Andy Pettitte will oppose Jonathon Niese for the 1:00 start.
