New York Mets beat New York Yankees 7-6 in 2012 Spring Training - MLB Update
First baseman Ike Davis takes New York Mets past New York Yankees 7-6 with a home-run in the ninth on April 3, 2012 at Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie, Florida during their Grapefruit League contest.
In an ideal Spring Training finish, Mets have spelled danger for sides in the National League East Division by defeating one of the strongest sides in the Major League. It was a close game, with Yankees equally resurgence in the pursuit of the lead that
the Mets had maintained until the fifth.
By recording five runs in six innings, the Yankees bridged the deficit and achieved a two run lead before Mets stood up again. By scoring one run in the bottom of the six and bottom of the ninth, they managed the victory.    
What was most impressive was the way that the Mets’ offense took on the Yankees’ starter.
Another positive for the Mets was Mike Pelfrey, who asserted his talent in an emphatic fashion after going through a rough time in most Spring Training games. At one time, his miserable Spring ERA took management into thinking of his release before the regular
As it did not happen, with his today’s performance, he will earn confidence of management to a great extent.
"It made me think I better get it going," Pelfrey said. "Obviously, I still want to be here and I want to pitch and I want to be successful. I'm not a guy that's ever had great spring trainings, and when he says that, it makes you want to get it going quicker
so I tried to amp it up a little faster after the Cardinals' game, and the last two I felt like I was getting it, so I feel like I'm ready."
In four innings, Pelfrey struck-out five, gave up one run and did not allow any walk.
However, Mets' reliever Jon Niese did not live up to expectations and in little more than one inning, he went for five earned runs in eight hits.  
Yankees’ starter Ivan Nova was fairly ordinary as he was hit eight times in just more than two innings he pitched.  
As Spring Training comes to a close, the Mets have experienced a perfect outing. How effectively they move forward from here onward will determine their success in the season.
