The Yankees recovered nicely after dropping the first game of the weekend series, taking a sloppy affair on Saturday afternoon, and then dominating the Mets on Sunday night to the tune of 8-2. Chien-Ming Wang was impressive for the third straight outing. He came within just one out of a complete game and struck out a career-high ten batters. Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada both hit home runs and the Yankees kept pace with the Red Sox who swept the hapless Giants at Fenway Park.
Jose Reyes was a terror on the bases against the Yankees–he stole five bases in the first two games before being gunned-down by Posada last night–but Derek Jeter had a terrific weekend as well. Take your pick as far as who the best shortstop in New York is, at least you’ve got an argument. They have different styles but both Jeter and Reyes look like they are having an awful lot of fun out there.
