Jason Bay Hits Two Homers as Mets Beat Yankees in Series Finale

May 24 (Bloomberg) -- Jason Bay, who hit one home run in his first 44 games this season, belted two last night to lift the New York Mets to a 6-4 win over the rival New York Yankees in the finale of their interleague baseball series.

Bay hit homers in the second and fifth innings off Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia as the Mets opened a 6-0 lead at Citi Field in New York. Johan Santana picked up his fourth win by limiting the Yankees to one run over 7 2/3 innings.

The Mets won the final two games in the three-game series after losing the opener.

Bay, who went 4-for-4 in the Mets’ 5-3 win two days ago, went 2-for-2 last night with three runs batted in.

Before yesterday, Bay had hit one homer for the Mets since signing a four-year, $66 million contract during the offseason. He hit a career-high 36 homers last year in Boston.

The Mets scored four runs off Sabathia with two outs in the second inning as Alex Cora hit a two-run single and Bay followed with a two-run homer. In the fifth, Bay hit a leadoff homer and David Wright added a run-scoring double.

Sabathia fell to 4-3 by allowing 10 hits and six runs -- five earned -- over five innings.

Francisco Cervelli’s run-scoring single with two outs in the seventh inning was the only run allowed by Santana, who improved his record to 4-2.

The Yankees pushed across three runs in the ninth inning and had the winning run at the plate before Alex Rodriguez struck out against Francisco Rodriguez to end the game.
