"This is the 20th season in which the Mets and Yankees have played each other. In the years since the Subway Series began, plenty of players have stood out — some for one game (Mets righty Dave Mlicki’s stunning complete-game, 6-0 shutout at Yankee Stadium in the first-ever meeting in 1997), others for a longer stretch of time. Though there are plenty of familiar names on our list of the rivalry’s top-20 players, there are a few who didn’t do much in New York — except torment the team in the other borough. 20. Alex Rodriguez, Yankees Rodriguez could have ended up on the other side of this matchup, but instead has bashed the Mets with 13 homers, 39 RBIs and a .311 average. Perhaps his most memorable moment, though, came in 2009, when Rodriguez hit a harmless-looking pop-up toward second baseman Luis Castillo with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and the Yankees trailing by a run. Castillo dropped the ball and two runs scored, with Mark Teixeira", nypost.com
"It was as if Mark Teixeira had morphed into Forrest Gump for this one wild and crazy Subway Series night in The Bronx. For if something happened on the field in this emotional 9-5 Yankees’ victory, there was Teixeira in the middle of it … being eaten up by a hop and spinning to the dirt in the top of the second … crushing an opposite field three-run job in the bottom of the inning … being hit on the left shin by Steven Matz’s first pitch in the fifth inning before responding with angry words that precipitated a brief kerfuffle … and then from the base path enjoying, if not provoking, Hansel Robles’ unraveling in the seventh. After it had ended, someone wanted to know what had happened. To which Teixeira responded with a wink, nod and wide-open grin: “Which one?” Honestly, it was a tour de force by the 36-year-old first baseman who not so long ago seemed as useful at the plate as Alex Rodriguez. It was a throwback", nypost.com
"Steven Matz faced the minimum 12 batters in the final four innings he pitched Wednesday, but the proverbial horse already had left the barn. The lefty was throttled for six runs on six hits in the first two innings, sinking the Mets in their 9-5 Subway Series loss to the Yankees in The Bronx. Mark Teixeira’s three-run homer in the second inning was the final blow against the Matz. When Teixeira came up in the fifth, Matz drilled him just below the left knee, upsetting the Yankees first baseman and emptying both benches — although peace quickly was restored. “I honestly didn’t do it on purpose. It was a bad time for the ball to get away from me,” Matz said. “But I can understand why he was upset.” Over his past 10 starts, dating to June 12, the Mets lefty has pitched to a 4.91 ERA as he deals with a significant bone spur in his elbow. “It’s been tough, but I am just trying to stay positive,” Matz said.", nypost.com
"Teixeira hit a tiebreaking, three-run drive off Steven Matz in the second inning for his first home run against a left-hander in more than a year, then got hit by a pitch that sparked a bench-clearing dustup in the New York Yankees' 9-5 win over the Mets on Wednesday night. Two innings later, Mets reliever Hansel Robles lost his composure at Yankee Stadium and started shouting when he thought Teixeira was stealing signs while taking a lead off second base. With the count 1-2 on Starlin Castro, catcher Rene Rivera went to the mound, was urged to head back to the plate by umpire Nic Lentz, then returned to the mound briefly before squatting for the next pitch. Two pitches later, with Teixeira smirking, Rivera went back to the mound for another conversation, then returned to the plate as infielders Kelly Johnson and Wilmer Flores went to the mound. Castro beat out an RBI infield hit, ending a 5-minute at-bat, and Robles was taken out by Mets manager Terry Collins. The", www.ctpost.com

Following two-out singles by Jacoby Ellsbury and Rob Refsnyder, the switch-hitter lofted the ball over the right-field scoreboard and into the first row of seats at Yankee Stadium for his 10th home run this season and first batting right-handed since July 31 last year against Carlos Rodon of the Chicago White Sox. [...] during a three-run seventh that opened a 9-4 lead, the Mets had repeated mound meetings with reliever Hansel Robles when Teixeira was on second base, apparently thinking he was trying to steal signs. Severino threw a 98 mph fastball that froze new Mets slugger Jay Bruce for a called third strike, gave up James Loney's RBI groundout and got Michael Conforto to", www.timesunion.com
