As their Subway Series shifts to Citi Field, the New York Yankees and New York Mets will both turn to rookies on Wednesday evening with differing expectations. Watch the action on TSN2 and TSN GO at 7pm et/4pm pt. After dropping a pair of games to the Mets in the Bronx, the Yankees losing streak in this series has reached six in a row. They also have lost a season- high four straight overall and hope that Masahiro Tanaka can stop the bleeding in the first of two straight in Flushing. The right-handed Tanaka has yet to lose as a Major League pitcher, going 5-0 with a 2.57 earned run average through seven starts. However, dating back to his time in Nippon Professional Baseball, the Japanese hurler is unbeaten in his past 41 regular-season starts, going 33-0 since Aug. 19, 2012. Tanaka has won two straight starts and is coming off a 5-3 victory at Milwaukee on Friday. He gave up two runs on seven hits and a walk over 6 1/3 innings, striking out seven. He has won all three of his road starts this season while posting a 2.61 ERA. The 25-year-old also is the first Yankees rookie to begin his career 5-0 as a starter since Whitey Ford went 9-0 over 12 starts in 1950. The Mets have decided to give their future a shot on Wednesday night as 23- year-old Rafael Montero will make his MLB debut. Hell take the place of fellow righty Jenrry Mejia, who shifts to the bullpen. Montero is regarded as the Mets second-best pitching prospect behind Noah Syndergaard and went 4-1 with a 3.67 ERA in eight starts this season with Triple-A Las Vegas. In 24 starts at that level over the last two seasons, he is 9-5 with a 3.25 ERA while striking out 119 batters over 130 1/3 innings. And while the Yankees are looking for Tanaka to get them back on track, the Mets are simply ready to see what Montero can bring to the table. "We think hes ready now," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told his clubs website of Montero. "I think everybody in our system thought that he was ready. That doesnt mean hell have a positive result on Wednesday, but were confident that Montero is somebody who can be successful long term." Though the Mets have allowed 14 runs over the first two games of this extended series, they have gotten plenty of offense themselves in winning both games at Yankee Stadium. They jumped out to a quick lead on Tuesday night and rolled to a 12-7 win. Former Yankee Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy both hit three-run homers, with Murphy driving in four runs in total and David Wright adding three hits with two RBI to the Mets third straight win. Zack Wheeler gave up five runs on seven hits and six walks in 4 1/3 innings for the Mets and Daisuke Matsuzaka earned the win with 3 2/3 innings of relief work. "Any way we get wins is good, especially when we come up against a very tough team like the Yankees and to do it in their ballpark is obviously big," said Granderson. "It puts us in a position now to win the series but it definitely isnt done yet because we know the Yankees arent going to quit." The Mets have won the past six meetings in this series after having gone 3-9 against the Yankees in 2011-12. Vidal Nuno gave up seven runs -- five earned -- on four hits and four walks in just 3 1/3 innings to suffer the loss. The leftys ERA climbed nearly a full point to 6.43. "He just got some balls in the middle of the plate today," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. "Hes a guy who has to live on the edges and they made it hurt." Brian McCann hit a two-run homer and Yangervis Solarte added a solo shot for the Yankees, who have lost nine of their past 13 games overall. McCann finished with three hits and three RBI.

Lions. Catch the game on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 as the tail end of a doubleheader starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. The game can also be hear on TSN Radio 1040 at 4pm pt. The Eskimos have gone from 4-14 in 2013 to 11-5 this year, but they know that securing that home playoff date for the West semifinal will not be an easy task against the Lions and their defence. Its going to be a big challenge, said running back John White, who missed Edmontons first game against the Lions this season, a 27-20 win for B.C. in Week 1. They have one of the greatest defensive fronts we play again. And two of the best linebackers in the league (Adam Bighill and Solomon Elimimian). But Im not focused on that. Theyre just players. I dont see any numbers. What the Eskimos do see is the Lions have given up just 295 points fewest in the CFL and have surrendered less than 20 points in five of their last six games. The Eskimos defence, however, has given up just 313 points tied for second best with Calgary and have surrendered less than 20 points in four of their last six games, including a shut out of the Saskatchewan Roughriders four weeks ago. With the statistics pointing towards a low-scoring, defensive game, Edmonton offensive lineman Matt ODonnell said the direction of the game will depend on the efficiency of the Eskimos offence. It all rests of thhe offence, said the six-foot-11, 340-pound right guard.dddddddddddd We have to be polished and have to play fast coming off the bye week. We have to come out and hit them fast and hit them hard. They have a good front seven. They move around a lot, have a lot of different packages, so we have to handle them physically up front. An Edmonton win, or a loss by fewer then seven points, will give the Eskimos second place. A win by the 9-7 Lions by seven points or more would keep them in the hunt for second place. Despite the importance of the game, Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly said the team is not looking at it as a playoff-type matchup. Its a big regular season game but the loser is not going home, he said. Its a big game for a lot of reasons. Playing at home is the most important, the opportunity to secure second place and not having to worry about all the other scenarios. The Eskimos also said they werent worried about the 10 sacks the Lions recorded last week in their 28-23 win over Winnipeg. We watched the film they got pretty lucky with 10 sacks, said ODonnell, who will be partly responsible for blocking Lions defensive end Khreem Smith who had four of those sacks. It wont be the same thing tomorrow. Reilly agreed. I dont worry about it because they didnt play against us, he said. Every team in this league is better at some things and not so good at others. And theres going to be weeks when one team gets a lot of sacks. I have confidence in our guys, they have been playing great up front all season. ' ' '
