Yankees and Mets play 3 games in NYC

+-

It's not typical for the Yankees and Mets to both have home games on the same day. Nor is it typical for there to be three games among the two teams on the same day in New York. Past rainouts helped cause such an occurrence on Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, as the season comes to a close.

The Yankees hosted the Royals at 1:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium followed by a Mets-Braves doubleheader at Citi Field starting at 4:10 p.m.
