One homer bet­ter

Albany Times Union - Sunday - - MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL -

4-1 win. Judge’s 18th homer got the Yankees fans fi­nally shout­ing louder than their Mets coun­ter­parts in a sell­out crowd.

David Robert­son (5-2) pitched a score­less seventh and Dellin Be­tances, the only player in this Sub­way Se­ries born in New York, struck out the side in the eighth. Aroldis Chap­man, who has been both­ered by ten­dini­tis in his left knee, worked around two walks in the ninth for his 17th save in 18 chances.

An­du­jar’s two-run homer in the sixth off Steven Matz made it 3-all. Tor­res con­nected for his 11th homer in the Yankees’ third.

Stuck in a scor­ing rut, the Mets re­ar­ranged their lineup — “We need to just shake things up,” man­ager Mickey Call­away said be­fore the game.

The new bat­ting or­der pro­vided an im­me­di­ate pay­off, too. Fra­zier, in the sec­ond spot for the first time this year, and Cabr­era quickly home­red off rookie Domingo Ger­man.

Trainer’s room

Yankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka was put on the 10-day dis­abled list, a day af­ter strain­ing both ham­strings run­ning the bases. Man­ager Aaron Boone said it’s “very pos­si­ble” Tanaka will be back be­fore the Al­ls­tar break in mid-july.

Mets: OF Yoenis Cespedes, out since May 13 be­cause of a strained right hip flexor, hit two dou­bles for Dou­ble-a Bing­ham­ton but was pulled early for pre­cau­tion­ary rea­sons with tight­ness in his right quad.

Up next

Yankees: RHP Luis Sev­erino (9-1, 2.20 ERA) is 7-0 in his past 10 starts.

Mets: RHP Seth Lugo (1-1, 2.04) makes his sec­ond start and 23rd ap­pear­ance of the sea­son.
