NEW YORK -- The 105th regular-season game between the New York Mets and New York Yan
#1
NEW YORK -- The 105th regular-season game between the New York Mets and New York Yankees, played Monday night at Citi Field, might have been the most unusual one yet.The teams will look to return to normalcy Tuesday night when the Mets host the Yankees in the second game of a four-game, home-and-home Subway Series.The Yankees won the series opener Monday, when Starlin Castros sacrifice fly in the top of the 10th inning produced a 6-5 victory. The game featured two ties and three lead changes but was as memorable for what happened beforehand, when both teams made two trades.The Yankees (53-52) are 5 1/2 games behind the American Leagues two wild-card leaders -- the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays -- but they continued to rebuild by trading outfielder Carlos Beltran to the Texas Rangers for three prospects and right-handed pitcher Ivan Nova to the Pittsburgh Pirates for two players to be named.Both Beltran and Nova were at Citi Field when the trades were announced, so pulling off a wild win on a day in which the club bid goodbye to two teammates was doubly satisfying for the Yankees.Its been a little bit tough because we lost good people in the trades, Castro said, but we dont have any control over this. Weve just (got to) continue grinding out like we did today. Were going to miss those guys, but well try to go out there, have some fun and play hard.The Mets (54-51), who are 2 1/2 games behind the Miami Marlins in the race for the National Leagues second wild card, acquired outfielder Jay Bruce from the Cincinnati Reds and left-handed pitcher Jonathon Niese from the Pittsburgh Pirates.A win would have been extra gratifying for the Mets, who squandered a 5-3 lead in the eighth inning. They technically had a 25-man roster Monday but were without the services of injured shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera (left patellar tendon) and outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (right quad strain). As a result, manager Terry Collins had to use pitcher Steven Matz to pinch-hit in the sixth inning.Its something youve got to do and get through it, Collins said. We were in good shape. We got ourselves where we wanted to be.Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom (6-5, 2.56 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (7-3, 3.16 ERA) on Tuesday.DeGrom threw seven shutout innings in his most recent start last Thursday. However, he didnt get a decision after closer Jeurys Familia blew the save by allowing two runs in the top of the ninth inning of a 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies.Tanaka took his first loss in more than six weeks last Wednesday, when he gave up four runs over five innings as the Yankees fell 4-1 to the Houston Astros. He was 4-0 with a 2.84 ERA in seven starts dating back to his previous loss, June 11.Following the Tuesday game, the teams will play a two-game set at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday and Thursday. Joe Hassett Jersey . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Rod Thorn Jersey .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights. https://www.supersonicsjerseys.com/90s-a...onics.html . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. Rashard Lewis Jersey . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. Ray Allen Jersey . Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. One of the worlds premier batsmen was furiously practicing his forward defensives. He lunged as far as he could and leaned over the imaginary ball so his bat could sing a little lullaby. Go to sleep... go to sleep... go to sleep, little darling. Dont you spin... Dont you spin... Dont you spin off the rough now... And ruddy send me sprawling.Elsewhere, a bowler capable of waking every last demon in a pitch warmed up with great vigour.There was activity everywhere. Some seemed nervous, others excited. Visakhapatnam had never hosted a Test before and its people were being spoiled rotten by India, England and the theatre of the fifth day.They saw a debutant produce the delivery of the match, making it drift in the air to force Ben Stokes to square up and play inside the line. Not even Liam Neeson could have stopped the off stump from being taken. So now Jayant Yadav has a decision to make. He had said dismissing AB de Villiers in a warm-up match last year was the best wicket of his career.Then Mohammed Shami conjured reverse-swing in the eighth over with the new ball. Neither of these incidents would have happened had the pitch not been so abrasive. It had needed a fifth day to get that way. The fifth day is under threat.There is merit to the argument that Test cricket needs help. It asks a lot of people who prefer their news in 140 characters and their videos to get to the point in 120 seconds. Besides, there are far more convenient ways to follow the game.The Andhra Cricket Association allowed free entry on the first day here and while the crowd was impressive it didnt threaten the stadiums capacity. Why would it, when iinstead of travelling outside the city, getting probed by security, sitting in the sun, and barely getting to see your favourite players, you just touch a button on your phone, get your info and move on with your life.dddddddddddd It is hard to imagine making Tests a day lighter would change any of this. A better effort might be to make the pitches more responsive, redress the balance between bat and ball and add context to every match that happens.Besides, why must we push for something that wont allow for Haseeb Hameed and Alastair Cooks remarkable stonewalling. Something that could lead to a savage pursuit for home advantage and limit the chances for a team to grow. Something that reduces the time available for a narrative shift - like in Visakhapatnam when four days of hard-fought cricket and spirited counters culminated in two and a half hours of spectacular action.R Ashwin tossed the ball up with cover open for the right-hander to beat his inside edge by miles. Ravindra Jadeja did not care for point as he aimed for the footmarks to generate variable bounce. No reasonable person will grudge this when it happens on the fifth day.Good batsmen go so far as to enjoy it. Kohli produced a masterful innings in tough conditions. Joe Root combated them by adjusting his technique mid-match, crouching more in his stance and shortening his backlift to be ready for the grubber.At a time when cricket is under pressure to shed its flab, this series has strengthened the argument to keep it roly-poly.
