The New York Yankees turned the tables on the Mets with a 7-6 victory on the back of an Aaron Judge multi-hit game.

The New York Yankees couldn’t seem to get the big hit on Friday night and fell to the New York Mets in debilitating fashion. On Saturday, the Bronx Bombers flipped the script.

Led by Aaron Judge’s three hits—including a solo home run—the Yankees came through when it mattered. The Yanks have struggled this season with runners in scoring position, but they came through four out of 10 times on Saturday.

Sonny Gray wasn’t untouchable, but he put the Yanks in a position to win. That’s a positive step forward for the embattled right-hander. Gray went 5.1 innings while surrendering two earned runs on three hits and three walks. He struck out six Mets.

Far from a perfect outing, but a stepping stone for Gray, nonetheless.

Steven Matz was roughed up in five innings. He surrendered five earned runs, giving up nine hits and walking one. The lefty was victimized by the middle of the Yankee lineup.

Stunningly, the once firm hold the Yanks had on the game vanished in the ninth inning. Aroldis Chapman relented three runs, three walks and a hit while retiring no batters. The Mets cut a 7-3 lead to 7-6 with Wilmer Flores up at the plate with a man on.

Chasen Shreve saved the day in the end. The lefty collected three outs in a perfect inning of work.

The rubber game between the Yankees and Mets during this, the second Subway Series of 2018 will come your way Sunday night from Yankee Stadium.
