The New York Yankees defeated their crosstown rivals the New York Mets 7-6 in game two of the Subway Series in front of 47,102 in the Bronx on Saturday.

Sonny Gray put together his second straight solid start for the Yankees.  After a clean first inning, Gray gave up a lead off home run to Michael Conforto on the first pitch of the 2nd inning. However, Gray bounced back and didn’t give up another run until the 6th inning when David Robertson allowed two runners he inherited from Gray to score. Gray finished the day after 5 1/3 innings, allowing 2 earned runs on 3 hits and 3 walks.

The Yankees put up four runs in the 4th inning which started with a RBI triple by Didi Gregorius to score Giancarlo Stanton. Miguel Andujar and Greg Bird followed up with RBI doubles and Austin Romine drove in Bird with a single to complete the scoring for the inning.

Aaron Judge hit a solo shot, his 26th of the year, into the Mets bullpen to lead off the Yankees half of the 7th inning to make the score 6-3.

The Yankees went into the 8th inning with a 7-3 lead before things got interesting after Aroldis Chapman entered the game.  Kevin Plawecki drew a walk on a 3-2 pitch to lead off the inning. Amed Rosario reached on an infield single. Ty Kelly and Jose Reyes each walked on four pitches, and Brandon Nimmo was hit with the 3-0 pitch. Chapman gave up three runs on 19 pitches (three strikes) and did not record an out before he was lifted for Chasen Shreve. Shreve was tasked to protect a 2-run lead with the bases loaded and no one out in the top half of the 9th inning. Shreve gave up one run on a double play but ended the game with a weak ground ball back to the mound, earning his second career Major League save.
