Mets Hang on to Beat Yankees 9-7 in Game 1 of the Subway Series


It appears that Yankee pitcher Gerrit Cole may not have completely recovered from his injuries as he gave up 6 runs and 7 hits in 4 innings.  This included home runs by Mark Vientos (2), Harrison Bader, and Brandon Nimmo.  Juan Soto hit a home run in the fifth inning to make the score 6-1.  The Mets scored three more runs in the sixth inning to make the score 9-1.  It appeared to be a blowout at this point, but the Yankees fought back.  Their comeback featured a grand slam by Aaron Judge.  I was so afraid that the Mets would collapse and lose the game, but the bullpen without the suspended Edwin Diaz closed the door on the Bronx Bombers.

I am guessing that about 40% of the crowd was Yankee fans who went crazy when Judge homered.
