May 30 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Mets scored five runs in the first inning and defeated the New York Yankees 9-4 for their third win in as many nights in the crosstown series.

The Mets (21-29), who have won four Major League Baseball games in a row for the first time all season, will try to complete a sweep of the four-game Subway Series tonight at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees starting pitcher David Phelps lasted one-third of an inning last night, allowing all five first-inning runs. Ike Davis, who came into the game batting .152, had a two-run single and Daniel Murphy hit a run-scoring double in the inning.

Marlon Byrd added a solo home run in the third inning to make it 6-0, and Lucas Duda doubled home two more runs in the fourth. Rick Ankiel had a run-scoring single in the ninth.

Brennan Boesch drove in two runs for the Yankees (30-22) with a solo homer and a run-scoring infield single. Jayson Nix and Robinson Cano added RBI singles.
