Chris Capuano helped Los Angeles bounce back by limiting the Yankees to three singles.
Bronx, NY (Sports Network) -
Chris Capuano stymied the New York Yankees in his return from the disabled list, firing six scoreless innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-0 victory and a split of a day-night doubleheader that marked the first-ever regular-season meetings between the teams at Yankee Stadium.
Capuano (2-4), sidelined since May 29 with a strained left shoulder, helped Los Angeles bounce back from a 6-4 setback in the opener by limiting the Yankees to three singles. The veteran received ample support from his teammates as well, with each of the first five Dodger hitters collecting at least two hits in the club's first triumph in the Bronx since Game 6 of the 1981 World Series.
The win was also a special one for Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly, who spent his entire 14-year playing career with the Yankees and had his No. 23 jersey retired by the team in 1997. The popular former first baseman and bench coach was visiting Yankee Stadium as an opponent for the first time in his career.
Wheeling and dealing, brighter days ahead for Mets

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
Let's be honest. It hasn't been easy to be a fan of the New York Mets.
While the ownership became a punch line during the Bernie Madoff mess, the on- field product devolved into just as big of a joke. Let's put it this way; it's a good thing the Miami Marlins call the National League East home.
But, on Tuesday the Mets may have offered a glimpse into what the future holds, as their Dynamic Duo of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler were on full display in a doubleheader sweep of the division-leading Atlanta Braves.
