VIDEO: New York Mets Manager Luis Rojas along with stars Amed Rosario, Dominic Smith and David Peterson share these thoughts after the team’s doubleheader sweep of the New York Yankees in Major League Baseball action on 8/28
The Subway Series is always an exciting time for New York Sports fans as the New York Mets (15-16) see how they can compete against the New York Yankees (16-13). In the 2020 Edition of the feud the Mets were able to complete a 6-4 and 4-3 doubleheader sweep against the Yankees.
The Mets were able to use the home run ball to help them to the Game One Victory over the Yankees. It was in the top of the Sixth Inning as shots from Pete Alonso, Dominic Smith and Jake Marisnick to lead the offense.
On the mound Michael Wacha went three innings, striking out seven batters and giving up six hits in a really solid start for the franchise.
Leading the way in the Game Two Victory on the offensive side of things for the Mets was Dominic Smith who had an RBI single in the bottom of the First Inning to give the team an early lead. Brandon Nimmo recorded a double, and Amed Rosario ripped a monster shot to left field that gave the team the eventual victory.
Pitching well for the Mets was David Peterson who tossed four innings, striking out three batters and giving up three hits in the no decision. Earning the victory for the boys in Orange and Blue from the Pen was Jared Hughes.
The Mets will look to see if they can continue the positive roll they are on with a game against the New York Yankees on Saturday (today), as starter Robert Gsellman (0-0, 7.71ERA) takes on J.A. Happ (1-1, 6.39 ERA). Gsellman is in the process of being stretched out as a starter, being converted from one of the relievers spots. In the last start for Robert he was able to throw 33 pitches and then 47 pitches in his last two appearances. Happ, meanwhile, has pitched just twice in the month of August, and will make his first start in 13 days. In J.A.’s last outing, he was able to hold the Red Sox to a solo homer over 5 2/3 innings, earning a win in a 5-2 score for the Yankees.
First Pitch for the Mets and Yankees is set for 1:05 p.m. with the action airing on the SNY Network.
