The New York Mets may have revenge on their minds this evening when they kick off the latest edition of the Subway Series against the Yankees at Citi Field.

It was just two weeks ago that the Yankees swept the Mets in the Bronx, triggering a 10-game winning streak that ended with back-to-back losses to the Atlanta Braves, including a 10-5 setback on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees hit four home runs in the loss, but starter Phil Hughes (7-6) gave up four of his own and Boone Logan served up another.

While the Yankees lead the majors with 105 home runs, they have had trouble hitting with runners in scoring position. They were just 2-for-11 in such situations on Wednesday and their .218 average with RISP is among the lowest in the majors.

"I don't think that our guys have really tried to do too much most of the time, it's just not happening," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. "I believe it's something that's going to change but it is something that has to get better."

Even with the two losses to the Braves, the Yankees have won 18 of their last 23 interleague games dating back to last season. They also hold a 2 1/2-game lead on the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East.

The New York Yankees are slugging their way to a strong stretch - with some impressive starting pitching playing a key role as well.

They're also on the cusp of sweeping a series from the New York Mets at home for the first time in nearly nine years heading into Sunday's finale.

The Yankees (33-25) lead the majors with 90 homers, and they've connected for 29 of them with a .481 slugging percentage during a 12-4 stretch that has them one-half game behind AL East-leading Tampa Bay.

That stretch includes six home runs against the Mets (32-28), as Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson connected in a 4-2 victory Saturday. That came after the Yankees took the opener of this three-game set 9-1 a day earlier thanks in part to a pair of homers from Robinson Cano.

Now, the Yankees are in position to sweep the Mets in the Bronx for the first time since June 27-29, 2003 - a stretch of four games that also included a Yankees win in Queens during a June 28 day-night, crosstown doubleheader.

Phil Hughes was dominant in his previous start and will try to build off that tonight for the New York Yankees in the middle portion of a three-game interleague series versus the Mets in the Bronx.

Hughes went the distance for the first time this season and for the second time in his career in Sunday's 5-1 win at Detroit. Hughes held the potent Tigers to a run and four hits with eight strikeouts and three walks, improving to 5-5 in 11 starts this season with a 4.96 earned run average. Hughes is 2-0 in his last three starts and has won four of his previous five decisions.

The right-hander is 3-2 in five starts at Yankee Stadium this season and 1-1 with a 4.20 ERA in four career games (2 starts) against the Mets. Hughes hasn't lost since May 17 at Toronto.

New York will try to give Hughes as much run support as it did in Friday's 9-1 pounding of the Mets in the opener of the series. Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the third inning to set the tone early, while Cano went deep twice and finished with four RBI. All four homers were hit off Mets ace Johan Santana, who was coming off the first no-hitter in franchise history.

Hiroki Kuroda was the star on the mound for the Yankees and he tossed seven shutout innings of one-hit ball with seven strikeouts and one walk. He carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning as well for the Yankees, whose starters have pitched at least seven innings in each of the last seven outings. New York hurlers had an eight-game run of seven-plus innings from July 5-16, 2010.

"When you have got a guy on the mound who is working quick and throwing strikes, it's keeping you in the game and those are the guys you want to play defense for," Swisher said of his teammate. "Kuroda had a good rhythm in game tonight and we had the bats working."

Recap:
The Yankees hit four homers off Johan Santana in his first post no-hitter start Friday, including three in a row in the third inning, and Hiroki Kuroda took care of the rest.

Kuroda gave up just one hit in seven innings while Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones had back-to-back-to-back homers in a 9-1 win over the Mets to open the three-game Subway Series.

"When you have got a guy on the mound who is working quick and throwing strikes, it's keeping you in the game and those are the guys you want to play defense for," Swisher said. "Kuroda had a good rhythm in game tonight and we had the bats working."

Cano hit two homers off Santana, who took the mound for the first time since throwing the first no-no in Mets history a week earlier, a 134-pitch gem that required a couple extra days of rest for the 33-year-old lefty who lost all of last season to shoulder surgery.

Coming off back-to-back shutouts, Santana (3-3) proved eminently hittable in five innings against the Yankees, throwing 86 pitches and giving up six runs on seven hits and a walk with five strikeouts.

"Overall, I felt good. It was just one of those days where things just didn't work out," Santana said about his outing.

Meanwhile, Kuroda (5-6) went 5 2/3 innings before allowing the Mets' only hit against him -- an Omar Quintanilla double that found the gap -- and ended with seven strikeouts and a walk.

The 37-year-old righty took a line drive off his foot on the last batter he faced, a ball that was caught by Alex Rodriguez to end the seventh inning.

Santana lost for the first time in his last nine starts (3-1).

He stretched his shutout streak to 19 innings with a 10-pitch first but walked Rodriguez leading off the second before Cano drove a first-pitch fastball over the right field wall for a 2-0 Yankees lead.

Cano, after Rodriguez's two-out single in the third, was first-pitch swinging again on a slider he sent into the upper deck in right. Three pitches later, Swisher homered to left and Jones knocked the seventh pitch of his at-bat inside the left field pole to make it 6-0.

It was the first time the Yankees hit back-to-back-to-back homers since the same three players did it against Baltimore last Aug. 28.

Kuroda retired the first 10 Mets batters until Josh Thole reached on Derek Jeter's error with one out in the fourth. But the Yankees turned a double play on David Wright's grounder and Kuroda faced the minimum again.

He fanned two in a perfect fifth and had a 3-2 count on Quintanilla in the sixth before the Mets shortstop stroked his double to the left-center field gap.

Kuroda stranded him at second, then walked Lucas Duda with two outs in the seventh. But he got out of the inning on a bizarre play when Daniel Murphy's low line drive hit off Kuroda's foot and shot to Rodriguez, who caught the ball in the air near third.

The Yankees went up 9-0 in the bottom of the seventh against Elvin Ramirez, who was working his second inning of relief for Santana. Rodriguez's sac fly scored Curtis Granderson, Swisher hit an RBI ground-rule double and Jones singled to knock in a run.

Cody Eppley threw a perfect eighth for the Yankees and Ryota Igarashi gave up a run in the ninth after Quintanilla walked to lead off, went to second on a free pass to Josh Thole and scored on Duda's double -- the second and final Mets hit of the night.

Game Notes

The Yankees went 4-2 against the Mets last season and are 50-35 all-time in regular season games...Cincinnati's Johnny Vander Meer is the only player in major league history to throw back-to-back no-hitters in 1938...No Mets pitcher has ever thrown three straight shutouts...The Yankees have won six of their last eight...Jeter had a 25-game home hitting streak against the Mets snapped.

As if the Subway Series needed any more juice.

Tonight, Johan Santana takes the hill for the first time since throwing the first no-hitter in the history of the New York Mets, as they begin a three- game interleague series with the Yankees in the Bronx.

Santana cemented his place in team history last Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals with an amazing 134-pitch performance. Making his outing even more remarkable is the fact that the two-time American League Cy Young Award winner missed all of last season recovering from shoulder surgery.

That, along with the fact that Santana had never thrown that many pitches and had tossed a four-hit shutout his previous time out, led Mets manager Terry Collins to give his ace a few extra days of rest.

"That extra day is always good," said Santana, who is 3-2 on the year with a 2.38 ERA. "I know my body very well, so I know if something is not right, I'll let him know. I'm not going to do anything crazy."

Of course, Cincinnati's Johnny Vander Meer is the only player in major league history to throw back-to-back no-hitters way back in 1938.

He has faced the Yankees 13 times (10 starts) and is 5-3 with a 4.18 ERA.

The Mets picked up a much-needed win on Thursday in Washington. R.A. Dickey improved to 9-1, as he held the Nationals scoreless through 7 1/3 innings in the Mets' 3-1 win.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Yankees - Freddy Garcia (7-6, 3.28) NY Mets - R.A. Dickey (4-7, 3.77)

The New York Yankees go after their eighth straight win this afternoon when they try to complete a three-game sweep of the Mets in the finale of the Subway Series at Citi Field.

The Yankees continued to thrive without captain Derek Jeter in the lineup on Saturday, as Robinson Cano hit a two-run triple to back six strong innings from Bartolo Colon in a 5-2 triumph.

Jeter's replacement, Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with two doubles and a solo homer, while Curtis Granderson added a solo shot for the Yankees, who improved to 14-3 since their captain went on the disabled list with a calf injury.

"Nunie has played well, but Derek is our shortstop," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi when asked if Nunez, who has gone 7-for-8 in the series, might threaten Jeter's job. "He's been here for a long, long time and he's still a great player."

Jeter played in a rehab game on Saturday and was 1-for-2 with a walk. He is expected to play for Double-A Trenton again on Sunday and rejoin the Yankees in Cleveland on Monday, as he continues his quest for 3,000 hits.

"He's played well," Jeter said of Nunez. "I texted him and told him to keep working. It seems like he is very confident. He's done a great job. He's gotten an opportunity to play and he's doing well."

Activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the contest after suffering a left hamstring strain, Colon (6-3) yielded five hits while fanning six to win his fourth straight start.

Bartolo Colon returns from the disabled list this afternoon when the New York Yankees play the middle test of the three-game Subway Series against the Mets at Citi Field,

One of the more pleasant surprises for the Yankees this season, Colon has been sidelined since suffering a strained left hamstring during a June 11 start against Cleveland.

The 38-year-old right-hander took part in a simulated game on Monday in Tampa and threw a bullpen session before Thursday's win over Milwaukee. He owns a record of 5-3 with a 3.10 earned run average in 13 appearances, including 10 starts, in his first season with the Yankees.

After missing the 2010 season with arm problems, Colon has displayed the form that won him the American League Cy Young with the Angels six years ago. He earned his third straight win in the outing against Cleveland and in the three starts before going on the DL he had allowed just three runs on 12 hits in 21 innings.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Yankees - Ivan Nova (7-4, 4.26) NY Mets - Jonathon Niese (7-6, 3.67)

The New York Yankees go after their sixth straight win this evening when they play the first of three games against the Mets in the Subway Series at Citi Field.

The Yankees enter tonight's matchup playing their best baseball of the season after taking all three games of their set with the Milwaukee Brewers to push their lead atop the American League East to 2 1/2 games ahead of the Boston Red Sox.

CC Sabathia fueled the sweep on Thursday, as he matched a career-high with 13 strikeouts and Mark Teixeira belted the 300th home run of his career in a 5-0 win over Milwaukee.

Sabathia (11-4) was dominant through 7 2/3 innings, scattering six hits and issuing just two walks.

"I was just trying to go out and make pitches and have quick innings," Sabathia said.

Teixeira led off the third with his major league-leading 25th home run and Robinson Cano added a two-run double for the Yankees, who have won nine of 11.

Getting the call for the Yanks tonight will be rookie right-hander Ivan Nova, who has won his last three decisions and is 7-4 on the year with a 4.26 ERA. Nova did not get a decision on Sunday against Colorado, as he allowed four runs and six hits in six innings of his team's 6-4 win.

Nova also did not get a decision against the Mets earlier in the year, allowing three runs and 11 hits in 6 2/3 innings. All three runs he surrendered, though, came in the second inning.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Mets - Mike Pelfrey (3-3, 5.11) NY Yankees - Ivan Nova (4-3, 4.33)

After hitting four home runs, it looks like the Yankees may have their swagger back at home. That isn't good news for a Mets club that is still looking for a rare series victory in the Bronx.

The two New York clubs square off this afternoon in the rubber match of their Subway Series at Yankee Stadium.

After the Mets were able to edge out the Yankees by a run to win Friday's opener, the Bronx Bombers got homers from Russell Martin, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez in taking Saturday's meeting, 7-3.

The victory, the Yanks' fourth in five games overall, also halted their six- game home losing streak that was their second-longest in the Bronx in 21 years.

The power display took the pressure off starter A.J. Burnett, who got the win after yielding three runs -- two in the first inning -- on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

"He was in a rough spot and he got away with only two runs," said his catcher Martin. "That was big. And then from there on he battled, got ahead of hitters and just competed the whole game."

Derek Jeter had a pair of hits and also stole his 326th career base, tying him with Rickey Henderson for the most in club history. He also moved to within 27 hits of 3,000 for his career, while the Yankees pulled into a virtual tie with the Rays for first place in the American League East.

The Mets also saw some club records fall with Saturday's loss. Justin Turner drove in a run for a seventh straight game, breaking the franchise rookie record he had shared with Ron Svoboda, who put together his six-game streak from Aug. 22-26, 1965. Also, Pedro Beato threw 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief, giving him 18 2/3 frames without allowing a run to begin his career. That surpassed Jack DiLauro's 1969 team mark of 17 2/3 scoreless innings to begin a career.

Jose Reyes added three hits and scored twice on Saturday, but starter Chris Capuano gave up all four homers over his 5 1/3-inning start.

The Yankees have lost six straight at home for just the second time since 1990. The has the Mets on the verge of winning just their third series ever in the Bronx as the two New York clubs continue their Subway Series tonight at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees came into last night's series opener having won three straight, but were dealt a 2-1 setback for their seventh loss in 10 games. They also dropped their sixth in a row at home for the first time since an eight-game slide in the Bronx from May 16-26, 2003.

With the Mets taking the opener, a victory tonight would improve them to just 3-11 in the 14 all-time series versus the Yankees in the Bronx. The two clubs split their six meetings a season ago, with each team winning its home series.

Knuckleball specialist R.A. Dickey held the Yankees to just four hits -- one a homer by Mark Teixeira -- over six innings to win his first game since April 3, snapping a five-decision losing streak.

"That's always a challenge," Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter said of Dickey's tough pitches. "No one knows where it's going."
