The Mets Lose The Last Game of the Subway Series 7-5

Since 1997 we have gone to one game of the Subway Series during most years.  The season has not gone well for the Mets as several players have been lost to injuries and four major players were traded in a salary dump.  Things have looked up for the Yankees with the emergence of Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, and other "Baby Bombers".  The Yankees are ahead in the wild card race and are chasing the Red Sox for the AL East title.

The Mets lost the first 3 games of this year's series, but I will report on the game we attended last night.  Gary Sanchez hit a three run homer in the first inning while the Yankees rallied for 4 runs in the 4th inning against a struggling Steven Matz.  The Mets made it close in the 9th inning as Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam home run to make the score 7-5.  Dellin Betances came in and got the save.

I observed that there were more Yankee fans at Citifield.
