All eyes will be on Yankee and Shea Stadium throughout the weekend when the Yankees and Mets collide in an Interleague affair for the second time this season. The Mets took it to the Yanks the first time around winning a pair at the Stadium before the final game was rained out back in mid May. That game will be made up Friday afternoon before the nightcap that should have NYâ€™s subway system working overtime.
The Yankees come into this series with the Mets off another Interleague series with the Pittsburgh Pirates. They currently sit six games over .500 at 42-36 on the year, and trail the Boston Red Sox by 5.5-games in the AL East. The Mets return home for this series after taking five of nine on its west coast swing to improve its overall mark to 38-39 overall. They trail the Philadelphia Phillies by four-games for the top spot in the NL East.
Friday afternoonâ€™s match-up pits (4-6) Mike Pelfrey against (1-2) Dan Giese, and the newly acquired Sidney Ponson will make his debut in pinstripes against (2-1) Pedro Martinez. Saturdayâ€™s afternoon affair will finds (5-3) Andy Pettitte matched-up with the Mets (7-6) Johan Santana. The fourth and final game of the series will take place Sunday afternoon when (4-5) Darrell Rassner makes his third Interleague start against the Mets Oliver Perez and his 2-2 mark at home.
