Monday: Phil Hughes holds the Mets are held to three hits in a 7-0 Yankees victory. The Yankees, after suffering mysterious injuries to everybody else in their lineup on Monday morning, score seven runs with a lineup consisting of players from Scranton Wilkes-Barre, Trenton, a fan who once caught a foul ball in the stands at Yankee Stadium, and a 12-year-old. Ike Davis has all three hits for the Mets, but is sent down to Las Vegas after the game for an undisclosed reason. Tuesday: The Mets honor Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before the game. They give him a framed portrait of Sandy Koufax, the pitching rubber, and for some reason, third base. Because there is no pitching rubber or third base on the field, the Mets are forced to forfeit the game. Wednesday: The Mets win 4-0 in the Bronx on a grand slam by Ike Davis, who was called up to the Mets for the game because when he got to Las Vegas, Zack Wheeler greeted him at the airport and the Mets wanted to keep Davis away from Wheeler's bad influence. Davis bats leadoff as Terry Collins pulls Wednesday's lineup out of a 1999 hat that Charlie Samuels once had in his basement. Matt Harvey, pitching on Wednesday because of the forfeit, mentioned to Kevin Burkhardt after the game how much he felt comfortable pitching at Yankee Stadium after 8 innings of five hit ball with nine K's. Thursday: With multiple outlets reporting that Matt Harvey is dying to be a Yankee on the basis of his Burkhardt interview, the Mets circle the wagons and score 8 runs off David Phelps, including another Ike Davis grand slam. Rick Ankiel makes the defensive gem of the series robbing Brett Gardner of a home run over the right center field fence while simultaneously punching a fan who looked eerily like Jeffrey Maier in the face. Jeremy Hefner is cruising into the seventh with an 8-2 lead when he gives up a single to Vernon Wells. Terry Collins then replaces Hefner with Scott Rice to face Lyle Overbay. Rice has pitched every day this series, including Tuesday when there was no game for some reason. And his first pitch to Overbay is a nasty slider, but causes Rice to evaporate into thin air. Brandon Lyon is brought in to give up five runs and the Yankees are back to within 8-7. The Yankees load the bases in the ninth off Bobby Parnell, but with two outs Parnell gets Robinson Cano to pop-up to second base. With Daniel Murphy camped under it, Luis Castillo runs in from the stands, pushes Murphy out of the way, and then drops the ball. Castillo is dragged from the field by his neck as he's screaming "NOOOOO, NOT AGAIN!!!" Cano is ruled out on washed up second baseman interference and the Mets win 8-7. Castillo is sentenced to 30 days of being hit in the face with a pie by Justin Turner. The Mets announce plans for Luis Castillo night during the next homestand. With Castillo not present because he's been banned from major league parks for three years for interfering with a live play, all of Castillo's gifts are presented to Mariano Rivera.
