PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Captain David Wright was not biting on the line of questioning about his club taking over New York. Still, this much was indisputable Sunday: It was a good day for the New York Mets. Before a Tradition Field-record crowd of 8,205, the Mets produced four homers -- three against CC Sabathia -- en route to a 6-0 win against the New York Yankees. Juan Lagares had a first-inning inside-the-park homer on a play in which Yankees center fielder Jose Pirela banged his head, became dizzy and required a trip to the hospital.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- New York Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores headed for X-rays late Sunday afternoon after fouling a ball off his left foot in the third inning of a 6-0 win against the New York Yankees. Flores was badly limping and wearing a walking boot as he departed Tradition Field. "It hurts a lot," Flores told ESPNDeportes.com's Marly Rivera. Flores remained in the game until departing with other Mets starters after seven innings. The Mets already may be without starting second baseman Daniel Murphy at the start of the season.
David Wright used Sunday's 6-0 win over the Yankees to wipe away any lingering doubts about the left shoulder injury that ruined his 2014 season.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Left-hander Duane Below's first Grapefruit League appearance with the New York Mets likely will not be his last. With nobody stepping up in the lefty-relief competition after primary option Josh Edgin required Tommy John surgery, the Mets borrowed the 29-year-old Below from minor league camp to pitch in Sunday's 6-0 victory over the New York Yankees. Below allowed a single to lefty-hitting Nick Noonan and had a strikeout in a scoreless ninth.
