Yankees and Mets Go Head to Head at Shea

Friday, May 19, 2006

The Yankees will be in Shea Stadium tonight to take on the Mets and as WNYC's Dan Blumberg reports, there's a different vibe for this year's subway series.

For the first time since interleague play began, the Mets come into the series as a first place team. In past seasons the Mets have only had one or two homerun hitters, now they have several. Still, the team is coming home after losing six of nine games on the road.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are just a half a game behind Boston for first place in the American League East and they'll have their ace -- or at least the man who should be their ace -- on the mount tonight.

Randy Johnson will try to put in a solid outing, after several rough starts. Tomorrow Mets star pitcher - and former Red Sox - Pedro Martinez will try to quiet the Yankees bats and their fans.
