The Mets opened the Subway Series with a miserable loss, as the Yankees beat them 6-5 in ten innings. They trailed 3-1, came back to take a 5-3 lead, and ultimately allowed the Yankees to tie the game and then take the lead in the tenth. It was about as miserable a game as they’ve played all season.
Logan Verret continued to be Logan Verrett, giving up three runs in five innings. The Mets overcame that outing when Matt Reynolds hit a three-run home run to turn a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 lead. But in the eighth, Jerry Blevins and Addison Reed combined to allow two runs. In the tenth, Seth Lugo loaded the bases with nobody out and allowed one run. And in the bottom of the inning, James Loney led off with a double before the Mets sacrifice bunted, Alejandro De Aza walked, Rene Rivera grounded out, and Curtis Granderson struck out.
