2-Game Box Score 1986 Mets vs 1998 Yankees

I am actually on a silent retreat Friday through Sunday so scheduled this blog for while I am gone and not playing any games. As mentioned in my previous blog, on Thursday the 1998 Yankees rallies late again, overcoming Sid Fernandez typical 6 innings of shutout dominance (I swear through six innings you always thought he would throw the Mets first no-hitter) with five hits in the 7th and 8th inning capped by a Paul O'Neill 2-run homer for the sweep.

Here is the line-score and box for both games.

On correction to yesterday's blog - the long drive at the end by Darryl Strawberry was caught by Tim Raines rather than Paul O'Neill. He came in as a pinch runner and stayed in right field.
Game 1                              123 456 78910 RHE
NY Yankees 1998000 000 0021 3130
NY Mets 1986200 000 0000 280

NY Mets 1986100 100 000  270
NY Yankees 1998000 000 13x  470

The OPS for players is for the season they actually played, and the pitcher's OPS is actually the OPS for all pitchers batting that season. The Yankees hit .282 for the series while holding the Mets to .208, though the Mets had the only two homers. The box appears below a picture of the scoresheet.
