Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. New York Mets 8/15

The New York Yankees and New York Mets are back at it again tonight in the second game of the annual Subway Series. These games mean a little bit more to some than in years past after all the back-and-forth that has been going on regarding trades, failed trades, backed out of trades and the sort. Officials for both the Yankees and the Mets have been quite vocal against each other recently and while that likely means nothing to the players in the grand scheme of things it tends to just make it a little bit more fun for the fans. Especially when I can scream “to hell with the Mets” on twitter and get a ton of retweets and such, shameless plug of @GreedyStripes on Twitter. In the start tonight the Yankees will send Sonny Gray to the mound to square off against Jacob DeGrom for the Mets. This is the final game in the Bronx before the series shifts to Queens for the next two nights so check it out live if you can make it.

Gray will make his third start for the Yankees tonight and his first start at home for the Bombers after losing his first two starts out on the road. Gray pitched well in both starts but errors and a lack of run support, literally zero run support actually as the Yankees have yet to score in a game that Gray started, has led to Gray taking the loss against the Cleveland Indians and the Toronto Blue Jays.

DeGrom makes his first start since suffering a right triceps contusion in his last start. DeGrom has been nasty since June 7 posting a 9-2 record with a 1.82 ERA in 79.1 innings so the Mets are hoping that the 99-MPH line drive off DeGrom’s right arm will not affect the way he pitches tonight in the Bronx.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11 and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. We as Yankees fans need to get this trending…. To Hell With the Mets!! Go Yankees!!
