Another Yankee has come to be the king of the mound on Saturday night for the second game of the Subway series at the CitField in Queens, New York.

AJ Burnett accomplished 12 up, 12 down from the first, third, fourth and seventh innings. He ended the night with 10 strike outs, 3 walks, 1 hit but no run; all in seven straight innings.

It was a no-hit record during the first five innings for Burnett until the first at bat of the sixth inning. Alex Cora, who was the first Met that Burnett struck out, hit a single in the centre field.

The Met short stop may have broken the Yankee pitcher's no hit bid, but, like CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett proved himself to be the dominant force in the mound. No more hit followed and the sixth inning ended with nothing on board for the New York Mets.

Brian Bruney was the relief pitcher during the eight inning followed by David Robertson. Both did great as each only faced three Mets then sent all back to the dugout, just like Brett Tomko's 6 up, 6 down on Friday night's game.

Citi Field once again witnessed another domination of the Bronx Bombers, 5-0 against the Metropolitans.
