Mets pound Yankees, then Yankees club Mets

It was a tale of two cities - or two boroughs, really - in New York Friday night. In the first game of the two-stadium doubleheader, the Mets beat the Yanks 15-6 behind nine Carlos Delgado RBI. Then in the nightcap at Shea, the Yankees won 9-0 behind a good pitching performance from Sidney Ponson.

If someone had told you right after the first game that Ponson would beat Pedro Martinez and not allow a run, especially after the deflating defeat, you probably wouldn't have believed them. Such is baseball.

Kei Igawa even made an appearance, allowing two base runners before getting a double play to end it in the ninth. Oy.
