Domingo German was rocked early but he settled in and struck out nine Mets in six innings of work.
The home team scored three runs in the first off of the young Yankee righty, with Todd Frazier providing the first run with a solo shot. Two batters later, with Brandon Nimmo on board, Asdrubal Cabrera would take German deep as well.
With the help of their newest Baby Bombers, however, the Yankees were able to respond. Gleyber Torres swatted his eleventh homer of the year in the third inning, while Miguel Andujar tied the game at three with a two-run shot in the sixth.
