Mets crush Yankees to sweep 2-game Subway Series

Mets, Yankees

Francisco Alvarez homered, collected three RBIs and reached base in all four of his plate appearances Wednesday night for the red-hot New York Mets, who routed the visiting New York Yankees 12-2 to sweep a two-game Subway Series.

Tyrone Taylor and Harrison Bader also homered for the Mets, who have gone 15-6 this month — the best record in the majors — to climb to .500 at 39-39.

Aaron Judge hit his major-league-leading 30th homer for the Yankees, who have dropped nine of 12.

Alvarez, who walked in the first, capped a three-run third inning with a two-run homer off Luis Gil (9-3). Alvarez ripped an RBI double in the fifth just before a lengthy rain delay. He singled in the sixth immediately before Taylor’s three-run homer.

With a chance at the cycle, Alvarez was pinch-hit for by Luis Torrens in the eighth. Alvarez is batting .415 with three homers and 11 RBIs since returning from a sprained left thumb June 11.

J.D, Martinez opened the scoring with an RBI single for the Mets while Mark Vientos (bases-loaded walk), Jeff McNeil (sacrifice fly) and Bader (double) had RBIs after the resumption of the game in the fifth inning. Bader homered leading off the seventh and Vientos added an RBI single in the eighth.

Francisco Lindor finished with two hits and a run.

Sean Manaea (5-3) worked around plenty of traffic while tossing five scoreless innings prior to the rain delay, The left-hander gave up two hits and walked five but struck out three and induced three double plays. He held the Yankees hitless in nine plate appearances with a runner on base.

Adrian Houser earned his first career save with three scoreless innings.

Judge, who homered off Danny Young in the sixth, went 2-for-2 with a walk. Alex Verdugo had two hits.

Gil allowed five runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two in 4 1/3 innings. The rookie has allowed 12 runs over 5 2/3 innings in his past two starts, which has raised his ERA from 2.03 to 3.15.
