Brandon Nimmo’s walk-off triple lifts Mets over Yankees in extras

The New York Yankees (39-30) bullpen blew a two-run lead, and the offense went 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position as they fell 4-3 to the Mets (32-36) in 10 innings on Wednesday night at Citi Field, splitting the first two games of the Subway Series. 

After the Yankees failed to score in the top of the tenth, Albert Abreu came back out for a second inning of work. He struck out Mark Vientos to open the frame, but manager Aaron Boone decided to take him out and bring in lefty Nick Ramirez to face the left-handed hitting Brandon Nimmo. However, that backfired as Nimmo lined a walk-off triple to right field, giving the Mets a much-needed victory.

This all came after the Yankees bullpen blew a 3-1 lead in the seventh. Jimmy Cordero walked the bases loaded, and Ron Marinaccio hit a batter and gave up a two-run single with two outs.

Gerrit Cole tossed six innings of one-run ball for the Yankees, while Justin Verlander allowed one run over six innings of work for the Mets.

Bauers had a game-tying single for the Yanks, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa stole home, becoming the first Yankee to do that since Didi Gregorius on August 27, 2016.

Tommy Pham had a run-scoring double for the Mets, who went 3-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

Both teams will get the day off Thursday. The Yankees will open a three-game series with the Red Sox on Friday at Fenway Park, while the Mets will stay home and begin a three-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals.
