ESPN will host game two of Sunday’s double-header between the New York Mets and the New York Yankees with first pitch set for 7:08 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
If you aren’t around a TV to check out this MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.
Official odds likely won’t be available for this matchup until the completion of game one of the doubleheader, but we can take a look at the early odds for a preview. With Marcus Stroman and Gerrit Cole on the mound for the Mets and Yankees respectively in game one, DraftKings oddsmakers favor the Yankees. Money line odds for the Yankees sit at -177, with the visiting Mets at +145. The Mets dominated the box score Saturday with 8 runs in the fifth and sixth innings. The Yankees answered with 3 runs of their own in the sixth, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the deficit.
The Yankees are probable to start left-handed relief pitcher Nestor Cortes Jr., which would be the third major-league start of his career. The Mets have yet to announce their pitcher for game two of Sunday’s doubleheader.
One of the most intriuging rivalries in sports is under the spotlight on Sunday, as the New York Yankees meet with the New York Mets in a double-header to wrap up their weekend set
After their Friday night meeting was rained out, the two rivals met Saturday afternoon, with the Mets blasting the Yankees, 8-3. The Mets were able to drive in three runs in the fifth, before knocking in five more in the sixth to take, so far, the lone game in the series.
The Mets remain at the top of the pretty topsy-turvy National League East with a 42-36 record, with the Washington Nationals slowly creeping closer in their rearview mirror, as the Nats are only two games back of the Mets. The Mets started off the month of June strong, going 8-5 early on. However, they ended the month struggling against divisional opponents. They dropped four of five games against the Nationals over the month, and lost four of seven meetings with the Atlanta Braves.

The Yankees continue to waiver around the middle of the American League East. Heading into the Sunday matchup with a 41-40 record, the Bronx Bombers sit fourth in the division, 9.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox, and five games back of a Wild Card spot. The Yankees did not help their cause by getting swept by the Red Sox last week, also dropping two of three, at home, against the Los Angeles Angels prior the weekend. The Yanks have now lost six of their nine previous games.
Thoughout the Subway Series history, the Yankees have the Mets number, going 75-54 all-time during the regular season. However, over the past three seasons, the teams have split the season series.
