The Mets came back after getting swept at Yankee Stadium with a win yesterday at home. The offense was led by an Ike Davis three run homerun and the Mets scored 6 runs on 10 hits in all. Starter John Niese was solid on Friday night and the Mets will look to starter Chris Young to turn in a similar performance tonight. Young has only pitched 17 innings this season and is pitching to a 3.06 ERA in limited action.
The Yankees have now lost three straight after winning 10 in a row. They scored 4 runs on 11 hits which was not enough for the win last night. They will turn to the 8-2 Ivan Nova who is pitching the best he has all season allowing less than one run in his last three starts. Nova is pitching to a 4.32 ERA in 85 innings of work.
The Mets are 7-0 against the A.L. East, 5-0 in their last five home games, and 7-0 in their last seven interleague games against a team with a winning record.
