Recap


Yankees 4, Mets 3: Raul Ibanez hit a tying three-run homer and Eric Chavez belted a pinch-hit solo shot two batters later as the Yankees rallied to snap their three-game losing streak.

Ibanez's seventh-inning blast off Mets starter Chris Young, his 11th of the year and second in 24 games, erased a 3-0 deficit.

Chavez delivered the go-ahead homer off reliever Jon Rauch (3-7), who was taken deep for only the third time this season, and halted the Mets' winning streak at four games.

Clay Rapada (2-0) retired the only batter he faced for the victory and was among four relievers to bridge the gap to closer Rafael Soriano, who worked around a one-out single in the ninth for his 14th save. The Yankees' bullpen registered eight strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings.

Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova, who had won his five previous starts, allowed three runs on five hits and struck out seven in 5 2/3 innings.

Young blanked the Yankees on two hits over six innings, but didn't retire a batter in the seventh and was charged with three runs on four hits.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis belted an opposite-field homer and Young added an RBI single for the Mets, who stranded 11 baserunners.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Yankees' rally kept Nova's 12-game road winning streak intact. ... Mets 1B Ike Davis, who hit a big three-run homer in the series opener, was a late scratch from the lineup due to possible food poisoning. He has 15 RBIs in his last 12 games. ... Swisher collected his 1,000th career hit in the seventh inning when right fielder Lucas Duda's misplay was ruled a double. ... Chavez's blast was the first pinch-hit homer of his career and the 13th blast by the Yankees in five games against the Mets.
