Yankees 5 8 0
Mets 0 1 0

WP: Burnett (6-4)
LP: Redding (1-3)



PLAYER OF THE GAME: A.J. Burnett.. Burnett took a no-hitter into the sixth, and his only hit he gave up in 7 innings of work was a single by Alex Cora. Burnett also struck out a season high 10 batters.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Melky's catch in the fifth inning. Melky went running toward the wall in left and had a little leap, and made a backhanded catch and running into the wall. The catch also kept the no-hitter in tact for one more inning.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Jorge Posada's home run. You knew the Mets offense wasn't going to get much going, so when Posada hit a 3-run home run in the top of the sixth, that pretty much secured the Yankees victory.

GAME NOTES:

  • Nick Swisher hit his 14th home run of the season. 11 of his 14 home runs have come on the road.
  • I did not notice the right-center gap is 415 ft. What were they thinking making the dimensions that big? That has got to be the biggest gap in any stadium in baseball. If not for that gap, Tex would have also homered.
  • Brett Gardner had 5 hits last night. The Mets have 4 hits in this series.
  • When things get bad for the Yankees, I am always told, hey at least you're not a Mets fan. I always thought this was just Mets fans overreacting on how bad they really are, but these last two games prove their point. It must be painful to watch this as a Mets fan. I mean there has only been 2 innings in both games where the Mets got a hit. If not for those two innings they would have been no-hit back to back games. Worse is they are playing cross-town rival Yankees who their fans obsess over trying to be better than. Chien-Ming Wang pitches tommorow. I guess that's the real test on how bad they are really playing.

Tommorow:

Yankees at Mets 8:05 PM ET Citi Field

Wang (0-6, 11.20) vs Hernandez (5-2, 4.05)

See ya!
