    New York (Ticker) -- The New York Yankees wasted no time getting to Matt Ginter and continuing their dominance in the "Subway Series."

    Ruben Sierra

    Ruben Sierra hit a three-run homer to cap a six-run first inning, then put away the contest with a two-run single in the seventh as the Yankees outslugged the New York Mets, 11-6, to complete a sweep of their day-night doubleheader.

    After dropping Saturday's opener, the Yankees increased the lead against their crosstown rivals to 26-13 since the start of interleague play in 1997.

    The Yankees appeared to deliver an early knockout blow after opening a 6-0 lead in the first inning, but Mike Mussina gave up three solo homers, including two to Richard Hidalgo, and allowed the Mets to climb back into the game.

    Mussina (9-4) pitched well enough to record his eighth straight win, allowing five runs - four earned - and seven hits in six-plus innings with two walks and six strikeouts.

    After the Mets closed to 7-5 in the top of the seventh, the Yankees regained a six-run cushion in the bottom half against former teammate Mike Stanton, who surrendered two-run singles to Sierra and Miguel Cairo.

    Ginter (1-2) was tagged for seven runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. He also gave up a solo homer to Cairo in the fourth that made it 7-2.
