A couple of great series open interleague play tonight, starting with the Mets and Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Check out the rest of the interleague matchups here.
On the Hill:
Friday: R.A. Dickey (1-5, 5.08) vs. Freddy Garcia (2-3, 3.22)
Saturday: Chris Capuano (3-4, 4.78) vs. A.J. Burnett (4-3, 3.99)
Sunday: Mike Pelfrey (3-3, 5.11) vs. Ivan Nova (4-3, 4.33)
Players to Watch:
Carlos Beltran: He’s off to one of his best starts in a few years and is the key guy to watch out for in the Mets’ less-than-spectacular lineup. (They are hitting .243 as a team.)
Curtis Granderson: The Yankees MVP thus far, Granderson will look to add to his homer total this series. His 14 rank second in the majors.
The Yankees (23-19) aren’t playing much better than the Mets (21-22), but they are definitely favored. I don’t think the Yankees will be able to figure out the Mets’ knuckleballer tonight, but two out of three sounds right.
