TIME/TV: 7:10 p.m., YES, WPIX, MLB.

Kings of New York: The Yankees are 3-1 against the Mets and have outsocred them 35-15 in just four games.
Offensive Outburst: The Yankees scored 28 runs in the last 3 games and the team is hitting .328. They have 12 walks and 16 extra base hits.
Sick Bench: Both Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon will not play tonight because they both have the flu.
Milestone Watch: With the Yankees 9-1 rout of the Me
ts yesterday, Mariano Rivera still sits on save 499.

UPDATE 7:27: A-Rod has also been playing better defense lately. Good sign that he is back.

UPDATE 7:52: AJ Burnett works into and out of trouble there. (Thats another overused phrase, not just by Kay, but by alot of announcers)

UPDATE 7:58: Nick Swisher hit a bomb as he went oppo into left-center. 1-0 Yankees.

UPDATE 8:33: What a catch by Melky. A leaping, backhand catch running into the wall. That's the second play that Melky made that Damon would not have today.

UPDATE 8:46: Burnett's line through 5: 0 runs, 0 hits, 3 walks, 6 strikeouts. Meanwhile Tex just scored on an RBI single by A-Rod. Tex hit a double off the 415 sign in rightcenter. I didn't know Citi Field had its own Death Valley. 2-0 Yankees.

UPDATE 8:50: HIP HIP JORGE! Posada hits an opposite field home run to left center and gives the Yankees a 5-0 lead. Posada had been struggling at the plate before that atbat. Maybe this gets him out of a slump. Tim Redding now out of the game. Stokes in for the Mets.

UPDATE 9:01: Well there goes the no-hitter. You had to figure he would lose it this inning since the YES booth would not stop talking about it.

UPDATE 9:24: We are seeing some great defense today. And an even more impressive Ramiro Pena the alst two days. A double earleir, and now a diving stop to get out Daniel Murphy. Speaking of Murphy, he can't catch a break. Melky robbed him of 2 hits and now Pena.

UPDATE 9:35: A.J. Burnett's night is done. Seven innings, 1 hit, 0 runs. 3 walks, and 10 strikeouts. Very impressive, yet again, he's facing David Wright, Gary Sheffield, and 7 bums.
