Game Day

Judge’s homer gives Yankees 4-3 win over Mets

NEW YORK —  After trailing early, the Yankees came back to defeat the Mets, 4-3, in the second game of the Subway Series at Citi Field.

Aaron Judge rudely greeted former Yankee Anthony Swarzak, sending a first pitch breaking ball to the seats in left field for the go-ahead run.

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.

With an inning each of shutout work from David Robertson, Dellin Betances, and Aroldis Chapman, Judge’s long ball in the eighth was more than enough to give the road team the victory.

Luis Severino is on the mound tomorrow as the Yankees look to sweep Seth Lugo and the Mets.

Current Yankees Record: 42-18
