Gray gets another win as Yanks beat Mets

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Sports -

Sonny Gray won con­sec­u­tive starts for the first time since the Yankees ac­quired him last sum­mer, hold­ing down a de­pleted Mets lineup in a 7- 6 Sub­way Se­ries vic­tory Satur­day.

Aaron Judge home­red for the Yankees, who sur­vived a wild ninth in­ning in which closer Aroldis Chap­man forced in two runs and failed to get an out. Chasen Shreve re­lieved with the bases loaded and a two-run lead, in­duced Devin Me­so­raco’s run-scor­ing, dou­ble-play grounder and re­tired Wilmer Flores on a slow roller in front of the mound for his sec­ond big-league save.

The Yankees trailed af­ter Michael Con­forto’s sec­ond-in­ning home run but ral­lied against Steven Matz with a four-run fourth that in­cluded Didi Gre­go­rius’ ty­ing triple, run-scor­ing dou­bles by Miguel An­du­jar and Greg Bird, and Austin Romine’s RBI sin­gle. Mets cen­ter fielder Matt den Dekker had trou­ble with three balls that went for hits that in­ning and struck out three times, leav­ing him hit­less in 17 at-bats this sea­son.
