Sidney Ponson pitched six strong innings and Bobby Abreu went 4-4 with three runs batted in as the Yankees gave the Mets a taste of their own medicine, returning the favor after being pummeled at home earlier.
Robinson Cano hit his sixth home run of the season, and it looks like his bat is finally beginning to heat up.
