The Yanks completed a three-game sweep of the crosstown rival Mets thanks to a pair of home runs — including the walk-off dinger in the ninth — from Russell Martin. Since the start of the Royals series on May 21, Russ is hitting .302/.412/.558 (slash line not including today’s game) with four homers and 10 RBI.

Someone’s getting hot, and that certain someone knows it:

I’m starting to feel dangerous at the plate; more confidence. It definitely feels good. I felt a little bit lost early in the season but now I feel like I’m better.

Russ, Russ. Hurry, hurry catcher come to bat:
