The New York Mets defeated the New York Yankees on Saturday evening.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 8-2.  CC Sabathia started for the Yankees and struggled and Matt Harvey for the Mets and he was great.  The Yankees bullpen was pretty good.  Juan Lagares led the Mets with four hits and Mark Teixeira led the Yankees with three hits. 

Sabathia pitched five innings giving up nine hits and seven runs.  He walked none and struck out two and took his fourth loss of the season.  Esmil Rogers pitched three innings giving up three hits and a run with three strikeouts and Chris Martin pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout. 

Harvey won his fourth game of the season pitching 8 2/3 innings and giving up five hits and two runs with two walks and seven strikeouts.  Carlos Torres pitched to one batter and retired him. 

Brett Gardner drew a walk, Teixeira had three hits and an RBI and Brian McCann drew a walk.  Stephen Drew had a hit, Didi Gregorius had a hit and Drew hit a double.  Teixeira hit a homerun and the Yankees were 1-5 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Gregorius committed an error. 

Granderson had a hit, Lucas Duda had a hit and an RBI and Michael Cuddyer had a hit.  Eric Campbell had a hit and an RBI, Lagares had four hits and an RBI and Wilmer Flores had two hits and an RBI.  Kevin Plawecki had two hits and three RBI, Lagares hit a triple and Duda, Plawecki and Campbell each hit a homerun.  The Mets were 2-6 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. 

Duda hit a solo homerun in the first to give the Mets a 1-0 lead.  In the third Ellsbury hit into a double play but a run scored to tie the game at one.  In the fourth Lagares hit an RBI triple, Flores hit an RBI single and Plawecki hit a two run homerun to give the Mets a 5-1 lead.  In the sixth Campbell hit a solo homerun and a wild pitch scored another run.  The Mets had a 7-1 lead.  In the seventh Teixeira hit a solo homerun to cut the lead to 7-2.  Plawecki hit an RBI single in the eighth to make it 8-2 and that was the final score.  The Yankees and Mets split the first two games of the Subway Series and will play the rubber game on Sunday night.  It will be Nathan Eovaldi against Jon Niese.
