NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Don’t mess with the New York Yankees.
The Bombers took care of business against the crosstown rival Mets both on the field in the Bronx, where they won the rubber game of the Subway Series, and on social media Sunday night.
The team — or whoever runs its Twitter account — was apparently irked by the Mets repeatedly referring to the franchise as “NY (AL)” during the series finale. The Bombers responded and the Amazin’s came back with a haymaker. But the knockout punch went to NY (AL) — er, the Yankees — who reminded its National League counterpart who’s boss, at least until the clubs meet again in September.
NY (AL) grabs a run in the 5th. We trail 6-4.— New York Mets (@Mets) April 27, 2015
@Mets Yankees. We are the YANKEES.— New York Yankees (@Yankees) April 27, 2015
@Yankees thanks for the update. We like to be associated with the great city of New York but if you don't like to that's cool.— New York Mets (@Mets) April 27, 2015
The Yankees (11-8) put an end to the Mets’ franchise-record-tying 11-game winning streak on Friday night. They rebounded from a loss on Saturday to take the finale 6-4 and have now won eight of 10 games.
The Mets, despite losing two of three, still have baseball’s best record at 14-5.
