The best pitching matchup on the slate for Tuesday takes place as the New York Yankees and New York Mets get set for Game 2 of their series.
Game 1 featured plenty of dramatics, but saw the Yankees come out on top in extra innings, as they snuck back over the .500 mark.
New York made it apparent it wasn’t about this season, but don’t tell their current players that.
The Yankees made the biggest splash this season at the deadline, dealing away star relievers and hitters as they shipped away Carlos Beltran at the last minute prior to 4:00 PM on Monday.
The Yankees saw Adam Warren and Tyler Clippard, two guys they got back in deals, throw a combined 3 scoreless innings in the victory on Monday.
New York sends out their ace here in Masahiro Tanaka, who looks to rebound after a rough start last time out.
Tanaka allowed 4 runs in just 5.0 innings of work as the Yankees ace lost his first start since June 11.
New York showed they meant business prior to the deadline and will see their new outfielder take the field on Tuesday.
Just prior to the deadline, the Mets acquired Jay Bruce from the Reds, to help boost their outfield production.
Bruce is hitting .265 with 25 homers and 80 runs batted in, which will certainly help the middle of the order for New York.
The move comes at a solid time as they will likely lose a bat in SS Asdrubal Cabrera, who is expected to be put on the DL come Tuesday to make room for Bruce.
The Mets send out their ace to counter in Jacob deGrom. He comes in off a solid start that saw him throw 7.0 scoreless against Colorado. However, he didn’t factor in the decision as the bullpen blew it late in the 9th inning.
deGrom has seen the Yankees twice, allowing seven runs and 12 hits over 12 innings.
