Gray gets another win as Yanks beat Mets
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.
