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 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.
