    Mets-Yankees Preview



    BRONX, NY -- Sixty-four games into his career, New York Mets rookie Pete Alonso is putting on power displays that are drawing comparisons to the 52 homers Aaron Judge hit in his first season for the New York Yankees in 2017.

    Alonso will get his first taste of the annual Subway Series on Tuesday afternoon when the Mets oppose the Yankees for the start of a day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium.

    Before Monday's scheduled game was postponed due to rain, Alonso was slated to bat third and be the designated hitter for the Mets. He enters this series hitting .258 with 21 homers and 46 RBIs. He leads all rookies in homers and is five shy of the Mets' rookie record set by Darryl Strawberry in 1983.

    "There's a confidence that comes with him, and he's delivered on that," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "He's gone and taken that job, and he looks like he's going to be a staple in their lineup for a long time. As an opponent, we've got to execute or he can hurt you."

    Alonso hit his latest homer Saturday in a 5-3 win over Colorado, and the Mets capped a 4-2 homestand by getting a 6-1 win Sunday, their 12th win in 20 games since manager Mickey Callaway was given a vote of confidence by general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

    The Mets (32-33) will be trying to get to .500 for the first time since May 28 but also are 4-17 in their last 21 road games.

    "We need to get to a point where we could get above .500 and start adding on," Callaway said Monday afternoon. "That's the thing that's kind of eluded us."

    Wins eluded the Yankees in the last week as they are coming off their worst week in two months. They are 2-5 in their last seven games but ended a six-game road trip with Sunday's 7-6 win at Cleveland when Aaron Hicks hit the tiebreaking double in the 10th inning.

    Masahiro Tanaka (3-5, 3.42 ERA) will start the opener followed by James Paxton (3-2, 2.11 ERA) for the Yankees, who are playing their third doubleheader of the season.

    Zack Wheeler (5-3, 4.61 ERA) will start the first game for the Mets, and he will be followed by Jason Vargas (2-3, 3.57)

    Tanaka was activated from the paternity list Monday following the birth of his second child and will pitch on seven days' rest after allowing four runs on six hits in the Yanks' 4-3 loss at Toronto on June 4.

    The right-hander is 1-2 with a 3.08 ERA in four career starts against the Mets.

    Paxton will make his third start since coming off the injured list after missing three weeks with left knee inflammation.

    Paxton's only previous appearance against the Mets was July 30, 2017, in Seattle when he allowed six hits in six scoreless innings.

    Wheeler is making his second career start against the Yankees and first since May 13, 2014, when he allowed five runs on seven hits and six walks in 4 1/3 innings.

    Vargas owns a 1.85 ERA in his last seven starts. He has not allowed more than six hits in that stretch and has surrendered one run or fewer six times.

    The veteran left-hander is 0-7 with a 6.84 ERA in 11 appearances (10 starts) against the Yankees. He last faced the Yankees on May 22, 2017, when he allowed three runs in six innings of a 4-2 loss for the Kansas City Royals.

    The Yankees lead the all-time series 69-49.

          Alonso Helps Mets Gain Split; Voit Lifts Yanks in Opener


          by RONALD BLUM

          BRONX, NY -- When it comes to All-Star first basemen, Pete Alonso and Luke Voit are on track to become New York's power couple.

          Alonso hit a three-run homer in the first inning off an ineffective James Paxton, J.D. Davis and Carlos Gomez also went deep, and the Mets beat the Yankees 10-4 Tuesday for a split of their day-night Subway Series doubleheader.

          Alonso's home run was his 22nd, the second-most for an NL rookie before the All-Star break, trailing only Cody Bellinger's 25 for the Los Angeles Dodgers two years ago. The drive on Paxton's eighth pitch of the at-bat and 11th pitch of the night left the stadium almost as quiet as it was in the afternoon, when the stands were about a quarter full at the start for the makeup of Monday night's rainout.

          Voit hit a three-run homer off Zack Wheeler in a five-run fourth inning as the Yankees overcame a three-run deficit to win the opener 12-5. After falling out of the AL East lead for the first time since the morning of May 19, the Yankees (41-25) moved back into a tie with Tampa Bay atop the division.

          Both first basemen experienced their first Subway Series featuring fulminating fans.

          "I thought this was a blast," the 24-year-old Alonso said. "I'm really looking forward to the ones at Citi Field. This environment was nuts."

          Voit was demoted to Double-A by the St. Louis Cardinals a year ago this week. Now he's vying for a spot in the All-Star Home Run Derby.

          "It's crazy, man," he said.

          Voit has 30 home runs in 103 games since the Yankees acquired him July 28 for pitchers Chasen Shreve and Giovanny Gallegos. The 28-year-old took over at first base from the repeatedly injured Greg Bird and has 16 homers this year. He is the leader at his position in the first results of fan voting for All-Star starters.

          "This team is giving me a lot of confidence to go out and do my job every day," he said. "It's just having fun in the locker room. I never feel like I'm a deadbeat."

          He made his big league debut with St. Louis in 2017 but was behind Matt Carpenter and then Jose Martinez.

          "There's nothing worse than when you're in the minor leagues and you're hitting good, too, and you're just stuck," he said. "There's been multiple guys throughout the history of baseball that have been in that same situation, and for me to finally get a chance, you don't want to ever look back on it and you want to roll with it."

          Gio Urshela hit a tying, two-run homer in the five-run fourth, had four RBIs and was a triple short of the cycle, ending a stretch of 15 at-bats without a hit. Gary Sanchez had three RBIs and tied for the AL lead with his 20th home run .

          Masahiro Tanaka (4-5) gave up a three-run homer to Jeff McNeil that put the Mets ahead 4-1 in the third but rebounded to win for the first time in a month. Pitching on six days' rest after the birth of his daughter Friday and the rainout, Tanaka allowed five runs - four earned - in 6 2/3 innings.

          Wheeler (5-4) gave up a career-high nine runs - five earned - in 4 2/3 innings. He has not won consecutive starts this year, and his 13 home runs allowed are one shy of his 2018 total.

          "My slider wasn't very good today. The changeup wasn't really working," Wheeler said. "The fastball was about the only thing going for me."

          Coming off a five-hit shutout of San Francisco, Jason Vargas (3-3) extended his scoreless streak to 17 innings in the night game before the Yankees closed to 6-3 in the third. Davis hit a two-run homer off Chance Adams in the fourth, and the Yankees put two on with one out in the bottom half when Vargas found a groove and retired his last eight batters.

          "I think that third inning got them fairly aggressive, and we were able to get back in the rhythm of things, making pitches down in the strike zone," Vargas said.

          The Mets (33-34), who have not been over .500 since May 3, won for only the fifth time in their last 23 road games.

          Paxton (3-3) remained winless in three starts since a trip to the injured list caused by left knee inflammation. He gave up a season-high six runs, seven hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings, departing after RBI singles from Michael Conforto, Wilson Ramos and Adeiny Hechavarria.

          "I've dealt with failure before, and I'll bounce back like I have before," Paxton said.
