Mets Can't Overcome First Inning Mess Against Yankees

Round one of the Subway Series went to the Yankees, who jumped out to an early lead and never quite looked back, beating the Mets by a score of 5-1.

  • Jon Niese had a rough go of it in the first inning. He allowed a two-RBI double to Mark Teixeira and a two out RBI double to Robinson Cano. Before you knew it, the Yankees already had a 3-0 lead. Niese straightened out though as the game went on, going on to pitch an additional five scoreless innings.
  • The Mets lone run of the game came in the second inning on a single off the bat of Ruben Tejada.
  • Jose Reyes had yet another multi-hit game, going 2-5 at the plate. This was his 43rd multi-hit game of the season. Reyes was thrown out at third base in the seventh inning after being tagged out by Alex Rodriguez. Problem was, A-Rod didn't tag him. Terry Collins was ejected for arguing the call.
  • The Mets were 2-10 with runners in scoring position.
  • Attendance for tonight's game was announced to be 42,020. That is the highest in Citi Field history.

Next up: The Mets send Dillon Gee to the mound tomorrow afternoon as they try to even out the series. Bartolo Colon will get the start for the Yankees. Game time is 4:10 p.m.

Side Note:

Don't have tickets to tomorrow afternoon's game, and have a burning desire to stand for three and a half hours? Well it's your lucky day. The Mets announced that beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, standing room only tickets for the 4:10 p.m. start will be sold for $45.
