Yankees 7, Mets 6: Aroldis Chapman nearly blows it, Bombers hang on to win

This was shaping up to be an easy win, but turned into a nail-biter. Don’t look now, but Sonny Gray has strung together two solid starts in a row. After tossing six scoreless against the Orioles last week, he held the Mets to just two earned runs off of three hits today. He didn’t quite give the Yankees the length they would have liked, but this outing was a step in the right direction, especially considering how he has struggled to pitch in Yankee Stadium. Things got hectic in the ninth when Aroldis Chapman imploded, but Chasen Shreve saved the day, just like we all expected. After a...

Lucas Duda won’t cool off. Jakob Junis’ night did not start well. He allowed a lead-off double to Joe Mauer followed swiftly by an Eddie Rosario RBI-single. He promptly got a double-play ball from Brian Dozier and then struck out Eduardo Escobar. He allowed only two more hits and two walks, the rest of the night. Admittedly, he pitched only four innings as he was on a pitch count due to his recent injury trouble but he still pitched those four innings without giving up another run and struck out a total of six. It was a nice bounce-back outing for him. Meanwhile, Salvador Perez ensured...
