Preview: New York Yankees @ New York Mets 5/14

The New York Yankees and the New York Mets will play their third game head to head this week as the Subway Series shifts to Citi Field for the next two games. The Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound to get his first taste of the Subway Series and will face off with Rafael Montero for the Mets. The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET and can be seen on MY9, ESPN's Wednesday Night Baseball, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with WFAN.

Tanaka's undefeated streak is still alive as he comes into this start 5-0 on the season after going 24-0 last season in Japan. In Tanaka's last start he held the best record in baseball holding Milwaukee Brewers to just two runs and seven hits in 6.1 IP. Including his 2013 and 2012 seasons in Japan Tanaka has not lost a game in his last 41 starts, quite the impressive streak no matter where you're pitching.

Montero is making his major league debut after the Mets thought otherwise in giving struggling pitcher Jenrry Mejia another start. Montero is the top Mets prospects in the minor leagues after going 4-1 with a 3.67 ERA in Las Vegas with the Triple-A team. Montero is coming off a start in which he threw 5.1 IP of no hit ball before giving the ball to the bullpen and now looks to take New York.

Go Yankees!!
