Let’s start with MLB baseball….where the Yankees lost another tough game to the Mariners yesterday…final score…Seattle 4, Yankees 3. Despite Aaron Judge slugging his MLB-best 45th home run of the season… Kyle Higashioka hit a homer…and Nestor Cortes pitched a solid game…the Yankees blew a 3 to 2 lead in the 7th inning when reliever Albert Abreu gave up a two-run home run and that was that. Yankees lose. The only good thing for the Yankees is that the Astros also lost so the Yankees and Houston remain tied in the American League for the best record at 71 and 41.
Meanwhile, the Mets have now won six games in a row as the Mets took down the Reds…10 to 2. Met outfielder Tyler Naquin had two hits including his 10th home run of the year. The Mets improved to 73 and 39…and now lead the Braves by seven games in the N.L. East.
