Mets give Hefner his first win!

He didn't even last an inning.

Coming off a game against the Tampa Bay Rays where he allowed 4 runs in 7 2/3rd innings pitched, David Phelps allowed that same number in only 1/3rd innings as the New York Mets score 5 in the 1st on their way to the 9-4 win against the New York Yankees.

The win gives Jeremy Hefner his first win of the season.  Hefner struck out 5, allowing 3 runs on 9 hits in his 6 innings pitched as the Mets provided their starting pitcher with some offensive support.

Lucas Duda, Marlon Byrd and Ike Davis all drove in two runs, and Davis, Daniel Murphy and John Buck all had 2 hits as the Mets poured it on for 12 hits against the Yankees.

Brennan Boesch went 3 for 4 with 2 runs batted in for the Yankees, including a solo shot to right field in the 4th inning that got the Yankees on the board.

Tonight: The Mets conclude the 2013 Subway Series with one final game at Yankee Stadium.  He's 0-2 in 14 innings pitched against the Yankees, allowing an earned run average of 4.50.  Of the current Yankees lineup, Robinson Cano is 2 for 6 with two RBIs against Gee in the last 5 years, and Lyle Overbay is 1 for 4.

For the Yankees, Vidal Nuno will be on the mound.  Nuno is 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA, and is coming off his latest start in Tampa Bay where he allowed 5 hits in 6 innings, earning 2 runs against his ledger.
