The Yankees, meanwhile, struggled to find their footing, losing their fourth consecutive series and eight of their last 10 games. Despite a valiant effort from Aaron Judge, who hit his 287th home run to tie Bernie Williams for seventh in franchise history, the team’s struggles continued.

Sean Manaea, the Mets’ starting pitcher, skillfully navigated early trouble, allowing only two hits in five shutout innings. His impressive performance was a testament to the team’s resilience and determination.

For the Mets, the sweep was a sweet vindication, as they climbed back to .500 with their 15th victory in 19 games. Francisco Lindor, the team’s shortstop, reveled in the triumph, acknowledging the joy of earning city bragging rights.

The series highlighted the Mets’ resurgence, as they have now homered in 10 straight games and scored at least 10 runs in five of their last 13 games. Manager Carlos Mendoza attributed the team’s success to the players’ dedication and the coaching staff’s guidance.

The Yankees’ struggles have raised concerns about their ability to maintain their lead in the AL East. Manager Aaron Boone remained optimistic, however, emphasizing the importance of learning from adversity and rallying around his team.

The Subway Series may be over for now, but the rivalry between these two teams is far from extinguished. As the Mets and Yankees prepare to face off again on July 23-24 at Yankee Stadium, fans can expect another thrilling installment of this iconic series.
