Mets Avoid Sweep against Yankees

The New York Mets entered Sunday Night’s game against the New York Yankees on an eight-game losing streak. Todd Frazier’s two-run homer in the fifth-inning is all the runs the New York Mets would need in a 2-0 win over the New York Yankees. The Mets also avoid the sweep and this is the first time this season the New York Yankees have been shutout.

Seth Lugo (2-1) was the winning pitcher for the New York Mets. He pitched six strong innings and only gave up two hits. Lugo struck out eight batters.

Luis Severino (9-2) was the losing pitcher for the New York Yankees. He pitched five innings and gave up five hits and two runs. Severino walked two batters and struck out seven.

Anthony Swarzak picked up his first save of the season for the Mets. He pitched an inning and gave up a walk and struck out a batter. Gary Sanchez lined out in a double play to end the game.

Aaron Judge was not in the starting lineup for the New York Yankees. He did pinch hit in the eighth inning and got on base because of two errors by Jose Reyes.

The next time the Subway Series will take place is the weekend right after the all-star break at Yankee Stadium for three games. The New York Yankees will start a two-game set against the Washington Nationals at home starting on Tuesday Night. The New York Mets will start a two-game set on the road against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday Night.
