Brian Roberts tripled twice and the Yankees finally beat their crosstown rivals after dropping six straight.

The Mets took all four Subway Series games last year and won two slugfests in the Bronx this week. Back home at spacious Citi Field, however, their bats went silent again.

Tanaka (6-0) had plenty to do with that, overwhelming the Mets with his vast assortment of pitches while spoiling Rafael Montero’s big league debut. Montero (0-1), the latest to arrive in a line of touted Mets pitching prospects, threw six competitive innings but was no match for Tanaka.
