Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Robinson Cano's home run in the top of the
eighth inning lifted the New York Yankees over the New York Mets, 6-5,
in the rubber match of the Subway Series at Citi Field.
Nick Swisher added a three-run homer while Mark Teixeira brought home a pair
of runs for the Yankees, who took the last two games of this series on the
heels of a three-game losing streak.
Boone Logan (2-0) earned the win with 1 1/3 perfect innings in relief of CC
Sabathia, who allowed five runs -- one earned -- on nine hits and two walks
over 5 2/3 innings.
Rafael Soriano worked around a two-out single in the ninth to secure his 15th
save of the season.
Miguel Batista (1-2) gave up Cano's game-deciding home run to take the loss
for the Mets.
Mets starter R.A. Dickey had won his last six starts and was coming off
consecutive one-hitters, but was touched for five runs on five hits and three
walks over a five-inning start.
