Daniel Murphy may have the best batting average on the New York Mets’ roster right now, but the Yankees have his kryptonite in their center field.
New York’s Brett Gardner has put together two highlight-reel catches in his last two games. Both were against the Mets, both were in the sixth inning and both robbed Murphy of hits that would have gone for extra bases. (Then again, both were also 2-1 Mets wins.)
Gardner took down a long fly ball from Murphy in Tuesday night’s game. The real head-turner, though, was on Monday, when Gardner robbed Murphy of a home run.
The Yankees-Mets series is moving from Citi Field over to Yankee Stadium for the next two games, where perhaps Murphy can change his luck.
