The Yankees answered back with eight runs of their own, led by doubles from Ed Keane and John McCarthy and singles by Danny Coffey and Nick Gonzalez. The Mets finally put the game out of reach in the fifth, on key hits By Nick Mohr, Jimmy Kroog and Eric Wick. Met closer Brian Wallace came on in relief of Wick in the sixth, striking out the side to end the game.

The Yankees broke their losing streak against the Mariners, scoring on big hits by Anthony Ciambriello, Danny Coffey, John McCarthy, and Phil D'Agostino. Nicholas Heck returned to the lineup after missing three games with an injury, playing a key role by scoring three times. Heck is the "Fireplug" for this team, playing everywhere on the field, and throwing his body around with reckless abandon. John McCarthy received Player of the Game honors, going 2 for 2 with three RBI's. He also pitched four innings, giving up a stingy two runs, striking out seven.
Sports Depot Mets 13, P.H.N.C. Athletics 9
The Mets stretched their winning streak to four straight, getting a solid four innings from spot-starter Brian Wallace filling in for injured Ace fireballer Jimmy Kroog. Wallace helped himself at the plate, launching two monstrous doubles to the base of the fence, finishing 3 for 3 with four RBI's. Eric "The Big Bopper" Wick continued his hot streak as well, crushing a three run homer to cap a six run fourth inning. Catcher Nicky Mohr continued to stifle base-stealers, throwing out three runners at second and third. The Athletics kept the game close all afternoon, getting big hits from George Yodice every time up. The slick-fielding Yodice, a second year Star, also swiped a couple of bases to keep his club in the game. The A's own "Bopper" Joe Laporta, had a good day at the plate, smashing a huge RBI double to left-center in the bottom of the sixth. Laporta, the catcher, manages to come up with big hits despite taking a pounding game after game behind the plate. Left fielder Jesse McCrae sparkled on defense, making a great catch in the second inning. Met reliever Jarrett Erins came on to relieve Wallace in the fifth, throwing two solid innings, and getting quite an ovation from the crowd.
