Yanks rough up Mets' Santana

THE New York Yankees pummeled Mets pitcher Johan Santana for a career-high nine runs in three-plus innings and crushed their New York rivals 15-0 to win the interleague Subway Series on Sunday.

The Yankees, playing in their home stadium, scored nine runs in the fourth inning and lashed out 17 total hits, nine of them off Santana (8-4), to take the deciding contest in the three-game series.

Their 15 runs were a season-high and the margin of victory was the largest in the 69 games between the two teams.

"You should have heard us in there (the clubhouse) - it was wild," Yankees winning pitcher A.J. Burnett (5-3) told reporters. "It was just a good all-round day. We came out swinging the bats and made a lot of defensive plays."

In other interleague games, it was: Marlins 11, Blue Jays 3; Orioles 11, Braves 2; Phillies 11, Red Sox 6; Pirates 6, Tigers 3; Rays 5, Nationals 4; White Sox 5, Brewers 4; Royals 7, Reds 1; Cubs 3, Twins 2; Dodgers 6, Rangers 3; Rockies 7, Mariners 1; Angels 6, Padres 0; Giants 7, Athletics 1; and Indians 3, Cardinals 0.

In the National League, it was: Astros 8, Diamondbacks 3.

In New York, shortstop Derek Jeter was a perfect 4-for-4 for the Yankees with Robinson Cano and Francisco Cervelli both getting three hits.

The American Leaguers scored four runs in the second inning, then unloaded on the NL Mets for nine more in the fourth. Hideki Matsui and Cano hit two-run homers in the inning as the Yankees collected eight hits while sending 12 batters to the plate.

The start was the worst of Santana's career. He left after five batters in the fourth, having been charged with nine runs while striking out three and walking two.

Burnett held the Mets to four hits in seven innings.
