The Bronx Bombers wasted little time making sure their crosstown rivals understood the situation by taking to Twitter for some Game of Thrones-inspired taunting.

It was just the second time since interleague play began in 1997 that the Yankees swept a season series against the Mets. In 2003, they won all six games the teams played.
