Since meeting for two games at Citi Field late last month, the Yankees and Mets have gone in diametrically opposed directions.

In that series, the Mets (79-44) swept their crosstown rivals, kicking off a 20-7 run that culminated in Sunday's wild, 10-9 comeback victory in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, since those two Mets losses, the Yankees (74-48) have lost 17 of 25, including Sunday's 4-2 victory to avoid a four-game sweep by the Blue Jays.

The first-place locals will face off in another pair of interleague games beginning Monday night at the Stadium, weather permitting (rain is in the forecast).
