The Yankees doubled up the Mets for their second straight win in the 2012 Subway Series on Saturday night. David Wright's eighth home run of the year, a solo shot to center, gave the Amazin's a 2-1 lead. But Mark Teixeira answered in the bottom half of the inning with a go-ahead two-run blast to right off starter Dillon Gee while Curtis Granderson tacked on a solo homer in the eighth against reliever Bobby Parnell. Closer Rafael Soriano retired pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin on a fly ball to center with the tying runs on base to secure the Yankees' 4-2 win over the Mets.
