Mets Yankees Interleague Betting

Johan Santana followed up a complete game 4-hit shutout last week with a no-hitter five days later.

How can you top that, as the Mets clash with the hated Yankees to start off weekend interleague play?

The New York Mets will look to grab an inter-league road victory when they take on the Yankees in New York at Yankee Stadium on Friday in baseball action.

New York puts its faith in starter Santana to earn a win and boost his personal mark of 3-2. Getting the ball for the Yankees is Hiroki Kuroda, who owns a 4-6 record on the season with a 3.82 ERA.
