The Yankees jumped on top early and held on through a shaky ninth inning, as they completed a four-game sweep of the 2017 Subway Series with a 7-5 win Thursday night in Citi Field.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before but Steven Matz had another bad outing. He gave up three runs in the first inning and was responsible for all seven that the Yankees scored. At this point it’s hard to justify keep running him out as a starter. Matt Harvey can’t come back soon enough.
The Mets used three relievers for 5.2 scoreless IP. Chasen Bradford hurled 2.2 IP and Hansel Robles added two scoreless frames.
