NEW YORK, May 22 (UPI) -- Alex Rodriguez went 4-for-5 Sunday and drove in the go-ahead run for the New York Yankees, who used an eight-run seventh inning to best the New York Mets 9-3.

Trailing 3-1 heading into the seventh, the Yanks sent 13 men to the plate, pounding out six hits and benefiting from a pair walks and a hit batsman to win the inter-league contest going away.

Derek Jeter, Brett Gardner and Chris Dickerson each contributed two hits and a pair of RBI and Curtis Granderson socked a solo homer, his 16th, for the Yankees, who took the rubber match of their three-game crosstown series with the Mets.

Luis Ayala (1-0) was credited with the win after tossing 1 1/3 innings in relief of starter Ivan Nova, who surrendered 11 hits and three runs over 6 2/3 frames.

Mike Pelfrey (3-4) was touched for five runs on eight hits in a six-inning start for the Mets.

Willie Harris went 3-for-4 with an RBI in the Mets' loss.
