APNewsNow. Yankees 4, Mets 3. With AP Photos. By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer Raul Ibanez tied the game with a three-run homer, pinch-hitter Eric Chavez came through with a go-ahead shot moments later and the New York Yankees rallied past the New York Mets 4-3 Saturday night to stop a three-game skid. Riding the long ball again, the Yankees won for the fourth time in five Subway Series matchups this season. The finale is quite an attraction, too, with R.A. Dickey coming off consecutive one-hitters when he faces Yankees ace CC Sabathia in a much-anticipated pitching duel Sunday night. Daniel Murphy, who hasn't homered all season, nearly won this one for the Mets in the ninth inning. With a runner aboard, he hit a deep drive into the right-field corner that was caught just in front of the fence for the final out.

Mets buy chicken for Frank Francisco, name it Little Jerry Seinfeld

Before this weekend’s Subway Series, Mets closer Frank Francisco notably called the Yankees a bunch of “chickens.” It was funny because it’s such a childlike insult.
