The Rivalry

History

While the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have one of the fiercest rivalries in all of sports, the New York Mets and Yankees have a heated rivalry of their own. The two teams have been divisional opponents since 1969, when the Mets were in the newly created National League East and the Yankees were in the American League East.

The rivalry intensified in 1973 when the Mets won the National League Pennant, only to lose to the Oakland Athletics in the World Series. The following year, the Mets got their revenge against the A’s, winning the World Series in seven games. The Yankees would not make it back to the Fall Classic until 1976, when they lost to the Cincinnati Reds. In 1978, the Yankees finally got back on track, winning their first World Series since 1962.

The Mets and Yankees met in the World Series again in 2000, with the Yankees winning in five games. Since then, each team has made it to the playoffs numerous times, but they have yet to face each other in October again.

The fans

Every year, millions of people tune in to watch the New York Yankees play the Mets. The game is always a heated rivalry, but the fans are what make it truly special.

No matter which side you’re on, one thing is clear: when the Yankees and Mets play each other, it’s always a good time.

Pitching match-up

Today’s game will feature a pitching match-up of two of the best in the game, as Mets’ ace Jacob deGrom will take on Yankees’ ace Luis Severino. deGrom has been sensational this season, posting a 1.77 ERA and 0.96 WHIP, while Severino has been equally as good, posting a 2.74 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.

Players to watch

The New York Yankees will be facing off against the New York Mets today at 7:05pm. Here are some players to keep an eye on during the game:

For the Yankees, third baseman Miguel Andujar is one to watch. Andujar had a great rookie season last year, winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award. He’s been off to a slow start this season, but he’s still a dangerous hitter that can make things happen on the field.

Another player to watch for the Yankees is second baseman Gleyber Torres. Torres is another young player that made his debut last season. He’s been one of the best players on the team so far this season, hitting for average and power. He should be a lot of fun to watch in this game.

For the Mets, first baseman Pete Alonso is someone to keep an eye on. Alonso is a rookie that has been tearing it up so far this season. He leads the team in home runs and is second in batting average. He’s sure to be a factor in this game.

Another player to watch for the Mets is pitcher Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard is one of the best pitchers in baseball and he’s been dominate so far this season. He should give the Yankees hitters fits in this game.
