Mets Top Yankees in Subway Series Opener

Ike Davis received a bit of help from the New York Yankees on his three-run homer and Frank Francisco closed out the Mets’ 6-4 victory Friday night after calling their crosstown rivals “chickens.”

Justin Turner had a two-run single and the Mets scored five runs in the first inning with two outs. Andy Pettitte looked flat after waiting out a rainstorm that set back the start of the season’s second Subway Series by 53 minutes.

Davis followed Turner’s hit with a fly to right that a leaping Nick Swisher got his glove on. But when he hit the wall, the ball was nudged off the top of the fence and over for a 5-0 lead.

Still, the homer-happy Yankees rallied with three late drives to set up a chance to see Francisco.
