In the 2012 Subway Series the New York Mets lost 5-of-6 games at the hands of their crosstown rivals, the New York Yankees. With high hopes my Wife and I went with two friends to see the Mets host the Yankees at Citi Field last Saturday. We took the Seastreak from the Atlantic Highlands, NJ and really enjoyed the 80 minute ride to Citi Field. It was great seeing my old Brooklyn neighborhood from the ferry. We were hoping for a win Saturday after the Mets took Game One on Friday 6-4. In Game Two the Mets were cruising and were shutting out the Yankees for 6 innings and held a 3-0 lead. Terry Collins wanted Met starter Chris Young to pitch through the 7th but that’s where the wheels fell off. Young gave up a walk to Teixeira, a run-scoring double to Swisher then a two-run home run to Ibanez. The shutout was gone and the Yankees tied the game 3-3. Jon Rausch was brought in and promptly game up a solo homer to pinch hitter Chavez. The Yankees won the game 4-3. While sitting in Section 503 it was quite a painful loss to endure. The Mets had their chances, leaving 11 men-on-base with the majority in scoring position. The Yankees took Game 3 by the score of 6-5 that featured less than stellar starting pitching from Sabathia and Dickey. There’s always next year but the local clubs will only play each other four times next season. I like the current format of two 3-game series and wish MLB would keep is this way.
