Final score: Mets 7, Yankees 1—That’s more like it

The Mets blew out the Yankees to even the Subway Series.

MLB: New York Yankees at New York Mets Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets evened up the Subway Series with ease tonight at Citi Field, as Jacob deGrom shut out the Yankees in seven innings of work and the Mets won 7-1. Neither team scored until the third, but Alejandro De Aza, who’s hit really well over the past month, hit a two-run home run. That put the Mets on the board first and was ultimately enough to win the game.

That didn’t stop the Mets from scoring a bunch more, though. Travis d’Arnaud hit a solo shot in the fifth, and in the seventh, Matt Reynolds drove in a run with a bloop single before Yoenis Cespedes drove in another with an infield single on a ground ball hit so hard that it knocked Starlin Castro over. And to add to the joy of that inning, Neil Walker drove in one more run with a double.

After deGrom left—having struck out eight and walked just one—the recently-returned Jon Niese took over. He tossed a scoreless eighth and allowed just a solo home run to Didi Gregorius in the ninth before finishing the game.

Full recap to follow.
