The Bombers split the season series with the Mets with a home win.

For the second season in a row, the Subway series ends in a split with each team getting a win on their home turf. As the trade deadline looms, the Yankees drew the last straw with a 3-1 victory Wednesday night. Carlos Rodon, in his fourth start of the season, gave what the Yankees were looking for. Rodon had four strikeouts on four hits in 5.2 innings pitched—the best performance to date.

“I think it’s a meaningful win,” said Boone about Rodon. “ It hasn’t been easy here since spring training and trying to get back. I think that’s hurt him because he wants to be out there. He knows he was brought here to be a big part of this team and it took longer for him to get back than he would have liked. But he’s here now and hopefully, he can build momentum off of this one.

After hearing the crowd cheer for him as he walked off the field, Rodon said, “It was nice, it was nice to hear the fans happy with the performance. I’m Just glad I had something to build off of and the defense today had some hard balls hit and made some plays for me, so overall we had a good game.”

Early run support

Rodon received immediate run support from the Bombers. The bases were loaded in the second inning when Peraza chopped the ball to Mark Vientos without a play, allowing a 1-0 run to score. Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a sacrifice fly to right field, which allowed Jeff Mcneil to get a close play at the plate with a diving Harrison Bader getting the hand in 2-0.

With an oppo double, Anthony Volpe scored Bader from second to make it 3-1.

In the innings that followed, both teams threatened to score, but they weren’t able to do so. Clay Holmes came in for the Yankees in the ninth inning to close things out for a 3-1 Yankee win.

As both teams continue to struggle, the trade deadline is less than a week away. Most thought this series to decide whether either team will be buyers or sellers. But many questions still remain unanswered as to what the future holds for both these New York teams.
