NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Amazin’!
The Mets were the talk of the town just a week ago — and not in a good way. Who could have thought a four-game set against the New York Yankees would flip the script?
The dark cloud is lifted — at least for now — as the Mets completed a Subway Series sweep over their crosstown rivals Thursday. Starting pitcher Dillon Gee struck out a career-high 12 and limited the Yankees to four hits over 7 1-3 innings to finish off the whitewash.
“The hardest thing I’ve done is try to keep these guys positive,” manager Terry Collins said after the 3-1 win. “It wasn’t about changing stances or shuffling bullpens. It was about trying to keep the guys in the clubhouse positive. Everybody goes through some bad times. You’ve got to work your way out of it.”
