The New York Yankees shoot for consecutive wins against the New York Mets on Sunday Night Baseball.
The New York Yankees have to get going now if they expect to catch Toronto in the American League East. The Yankees had dropped seven of ten before picking up a big 5-0 win against the Mets Saturday. Michael Pineda held the Mets to four hits over 5.1 frames to up his record to 11-8 while the offense played some long ball. Carlos Beltran cracked a three run homer and scored twice while Brian McCann connected on a two run shot. Veteran left hander CC Sabathia gets the ball against the rival Mets on Sunday night. Sabathia has been throwing the ball well in his last three but is 0-0 despite a 1.93 ERA.

The New York Mets are firmly in control of the National League East as long as they don’t fall off the map. The Mets might be in firm control but have lost three of four after Saturday’s defeat and need to prevent a full blown slump. It all started on the mound where Noah Syndergaard was charged with all five runs on seven hits through six innings to fall to 8-7. The offense was silenced on six hits and a pair of free passes with Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy reaching base twice. The Mets turn to Matt Harvey to get a win versus the Yankees on Sunday Night Baseball. Harvey has been his usual stubborn self with a 12-7 record with a 1.04 WHIP and 2.88 ERA.
The over is 6-2 in the Yankees last 8 interleague games and the Yankees are 10-4 in their last 14 road games while going 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The over is 7-2 in the Mets last 9 interleague games and is 7-2 in their last 9 vs. American League East while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 interleague home games. The under is 16-5 in the last 21 in New York. Harvey is supposed to pick his team up and I’m looking for him to do that…
