New York Mets vs New York Yankees

The battle for New York is on as the New York Mets visit the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Friday night in a three-game slugfest. No matter the records, these two teams come to play. Bragging rights are a big deal among New Yorkers and the subway series is no joke.

Domingo German (2-5, 5.49 ERA) takes the mound in game one against Mets ace Noah Syndergaard (5-2, 2.97 ERA) to kick off what should be an entertaining series.

New York Mets's Latest Performance :

The Mets have struggled this season and currently sit in last place at 13.5 games back. They’ve gone 4-6 in their last ten and took a 6-1 beating from Washington before the break. On the bright side, the Mets have pitcher Jacob deGrom who is poised to make a run at the Cy Young Award during the second half of the season. The righty leads all of baseball with a 1.68 ERA and was a member of the All-Star team this year.

New York Yankees's Latest Performance :

The Yankees have had a solid season thus far. They’ve dropped back 4.5 games behind the always dangerous Boston Red Sox and are coming off of a 5-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians to start the break. This series with the Mets is important to start the second half of the season. The Mets shut them out 2-0 in their last meeting even though they are in last place in the NL East. The Yanks must keep pace with the Sox if they want to eventually win the division and take over as AL East champs.
