Gray wins consecutive starts, Yanks hold Mets 7-6 (July 21, 2018)

NEW YORK (AP) Sonny Gray won the exhausted Mets line-up for the first time since taking charge last summer, with Yoenis Cespedes missing out on Saturday's 7: 6 subway win.

Aaron Judge For the Yankees who survived a wild ninth inning in which closer Aroldis forced Chapman in two runs and failed to get out, he married. Chasen Shreve was relieved with the bases and a two-run lead, which put Devin Mesoraco's run-scoring, double-play grounder and retired Wilmer Flores on a slow roll off the hill for his second big-league save, his first since August 2016

The Yankees followed in the second round after Michael Conforto's home race, but climbed Steven Matz with a fourth run, Didi Gregorius' double by Miguel Andujar and Greg Bird, and Austin Romine's RBI single. Mets midfielder Matt den Dekker struggled with three balls for goals scored and trimmed three times, leaving him bumper-free in 17 bats this season.

One day after he said he needed surgery on both heels After a recovery period of eight to ten months, Cespedes was back outside and the Mets front office did not publicly comment on his surprising health revelation. Cespedes married on Friday in the Mets 7-5, his first game since May 13, after two months on the list of disabled, caused by a tight right hip flexor.

Mets did not approach Jeury's Familia again. Manager Mickey Callaway said before the game that he was waiting to ask if Familia would be traded.

Gray (7-7) was a disappointment as the Yankees acquired him from Oakland on July 31st and made 11-14 in 30 starts. He left with a 4-1 lead but David Robertson gave up Amed Rosario's RBI single and then allowed another run as he threw a faulty pickoff.

Gray has a 7.62 ERA in nine home starts this year and a 3.62 ERA in 10 road appearances. He allowed three runs – two earned – three hits and three runs in 5 1/3 innings. Pitching for the first time in a week, Chapman issued a leadoff-walk, allowed an infield hit, then forced to walk in a run pitch-hitter Ty Kelly and Jose Reyes on eight straight pitches. He hit Brandon Nimmo 2-0 and was substituted in favor of Shreve.

Matz (4-8) lost his third consecutive start, posting five runs and nine hits in over five innings.

Giancarlo Stanton came in third with a slow bouncer who dropped out of the fourth infield single, and the Dekker went a bad way when he missed a diving backhand gripper on Gregorius' Liner's threefold the fence jumped. Andujar followed with a fly to the short porch in front of the right field and it was a green double when a spectator grabbed the wall, caught it and was cited for fan interference.

Bird hit an RBI double, which disappeared from the glove of the Dekker, who tried to run in the warning lane, and Romine had a Blooper to just before the center, who met with a short jump the glove of a diving dunk Dekker and returned to the infield run scoring single. [19659002] After the Mets closed within a run in the top of the sixth, Bird Matz chased an RBI single in the lower half and Judge heard through a stormy wind in the seventh against Tim Peterson. Judge Met 18 of 26 Home Run Yankees


Domingo Acevedo was recalled by Double-A Trenton of the Yankees who were short on Bullpen after Domingo German failed to finish four innings on Friday. Acevedo, a 24-year-old right-hander, is 6-6 and has scored 3.25 ERA in 23 starts. He watched Netflix in his hotel room and thought at first that something was wrong when manager Jay Bell and coach Tim Tim Norton knocked on his door at about 11:00 pm. Friday in Binghamton. Acevedo called his mother in the Dominican Republic, and she also thought something was wrong at the late hour.


Mets punch coach Pat Roessler was ejected in the third inning by panel referee Larry Vanover for bickering from the shelter after a battered third strike against Jose Reyes, and DH Asdrubal Cabrera was thrown by third-base referee Hunter Wendelstedt after he threw his bat as he threw on a checkered swing with runners at the corners for the third of the fifth, then the dugout


Nimmo was hit twice and brought a Mets record this season 15 on.


Yankees: 2B Gleyber Torres, who had been straining his right hip since July 4, was starting an injury rehabilitation task Saturday night with Class A Tampa and will be Yankees again on Wednesday in Tampa Bay.


RHP Jacob deGrom (5-4, 1.68), who has the lowest ERA in the major leagues, starts for the Mets and RHP M Asahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.54) for the Yankees [19659002] –
