NEW YORK (AP) — Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy each hit a three-run homer Tuesday night and the New York Mets roughed up fill-in starter Vidal Nuno to beat the Yankees 12-7 for a two-game sweep in the Bronx.

Granderson connected for the second consecutive game in his old home ballpark, helping the Mets jump out to a quick lead after they used four homers to rally for a 9-7 victory a night earlier.

David Wright had three hits and two RBIs, and Daisuke Matsuzaka (1-0) pitched 3 2-3 innings in relief of a wild Zack Wheeler as the Mets won their sixth straight against their crosstown rivals, including a 4-0 mark last year.

Eric Young Jr. scored three runs without a hit, and the Mets won their third in a row overall to return to .500 after losing eight of nine.
