Yankees power their way past the sinking Mets 7-5
The Yankees sweep the Mets in their 4-game series. The series final game ended 7-5 at Citi Field on Thursday night.
The Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was clearly the team's hitting star. Sanchez drove in five runs. 2 were via a HR and he also contributed a 2-RBI single.
On the other side of New York, the Mets starter Steven Matz (2-7) struggled again. He lasted a mere 3.1 innings allowing seven runs on six hits.
The game was 7-1 until the 9th. Granderson hit a grand slam making it a 7-5 game. Rumor has it he will be traded by Friday evening as a salary dump.
If Granderson and Cabreara get traded they will join Duda, Bruce and Neil Walker. It also might mean an even sharper drop in the (53-66) Mets attendance. These are tough times to be a Mets fan.
