Starting Pitcher- Domingo German
The New York Mets took on the New York Yankees to start their 2 day series from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
DJ LeMahieu, who I now call “clutch” started the scoring in the bottom of the 1st inning with a sac fly to right field bringing Andrew Benintendi home and the Yankees led 1-0.
Aaron Judge hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 3rd inning and the Yankees led 2-0. (It’s been 9 games since Judge has hit a home run)
The Yankees added another run in the bottom of the 5th inning as Benintendi hit an RBI double to deep right field, scoring IKF and the Yankees now led 3-0.
The Mets made it a 3-2 game in the top of the 7th inning on a two-run home-run by Daniel Vogelbach, but that is as close as the Mets would get to the Yankees all night long as Benintendi belted an RBI single to right field scoring IKF.
The Yankees took game 1 of the Sub-Way Series, 4-2.
This is the Yankees first back-to-back win in the month of August. Let’s keep it up!
