Mets Win Game 1 of Subway Series Against Yankees (6-3) Thanks to 1st-Inning Counterstrike

The battle of the Burroughs brought Game 1 of a two-game Subway Series to Citi Field on Tuesday, and the home team delivered. The Yankees immediately blasted back-to-back home runs to open the 1st inning, but the Mets responded with four runs in the bottom. Starling Marte and Eduardo Escobar both hit jacks, and Pete Alonso (3-for-3) and Francisco Lindor (2-for-4) added firepower. Mets’ ace Taijuan Walker allowed three runs over six innings before Adam Ottavino and Edwin Diaz finished the game. The Mets won (6-3) and cracked 60 wins on the season (60-37). The Yankees (66-32) still lead the majors. Game 2 is tonight (7:10 pm ET), and the Subway Series could be a World Series preview baseball fans can wish for…

MLB Quick-Hitters


Urias Calls GameThe Brewers and Twins played a back-and-forth contest Tuesday in a battle of division leaders. Milwaukee’s Luis Urias (3-for-4, 1 HR, 2 RBIs) hit the walk-off sac fly in the bottom of the 9th for the win (7-6).


Springer’s Slam: George Springer smacked a grand slam in the bottom of the 6th in the Blue Jays’ blowout against the Red Sox (10-3). That’s seven straight for a surging Toronto club.


Contreras’ Cubs Goodbye: With the trade deadline looming, all signs point to Willson Contreras leaving Chicago in the coming days. The all-star catcher got a standing ovation from Wrigley Field in what could be his final outing on Tuesday in a 4-2 win over the Pirates.
