NEW YORK — Gio Urshela and Luke Voit homered off Zack Wheeler in a five-run fourth inning, and the New York Yankees tied their season high with 15 hits in a 12-5 rout of the Mets on Tuesday that opened a day-night Subway Series doubleheader.

Masahiro Tanaka (4-5) gave up a three-run homer to Jeff McNeil that put the Mets ahead 4-1 in the third but rebounded to win for the first time in a month.

Urshela had four RBI and was a triple short of the cycle, ending stretch of 15 at-bats without a hit. Voit hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer and has 30 home runs in 102 games since the Yankees acquired him from St. Louis last summer, including 16 this year.

In the second game, the Mets hit three home runs and won, 10-4.

NOTES

BRAVES: Third baseman Josh Donaldson has appealed a one-game suspension for shoving Pirates catcher Elias Diaz in the first inning of Monday’s game. Donaldson can continue to play until his appeal is heard and was in his customary cleanup spot in the Atlanta batting order Tuesday night.

The ruckus began when Pirates starter Joe Musgrove hit Donaldson with a pitch. As Donaldson began walking to first base, he exchanged glares with Musgrove and took a few steps toward the mound. He shoved Díaz when the catcher intervened.

ORIOLES: Baltimore right-hander Alex Cobb will have season-ending surgery on his right hip.

MARINERS: Seattle  reinstated second baseman Dee Gordon from the injured list following a 19-game absence because of a bruised right wrist.
