Check out these 5 selected images from tonight’s New York Mets vs. New York Yankees game from Yankee Stadium, won by the Mets 8-5.
What promised to be a great pitching duel between two of the best pitchers in the Major Leagues, JACOB de GROM(for the Mets), and LUIS SEVERINO(for the Yankees),
Turned into a one-sided game as de GROM totally outpitched his cross town competitor LUIS SEVERINO. Supported with 5 home runs, de GROM allowed only two earned runs while striking out 12 over 6 2/3 innings while SEVERINO lasted only 4 innings, allowing 7 hits and 4 runs. Over his last 7 outings, SEVERINO has pitched poorly and may be a problem of the Yankees as they try to keep pace with the Red Sox. For the Mets, given their disastrous season, there is only one prize left in play— the NL CY YOUNG AWARD for their ace, JACOB de GROM.
