The Yankees made easy work of the Tampa Bay Rays, capping off a three-game sweep with a 12-1 victory in the Bronx on Wednesday afternoon. Gary Sanchez hit his 21st home run of the season and C.C. Sabathia earned career victory number 250. The Yankees lead the AL East by 3.5 games and will open up a four-game series with the Astros tonight.
The Mets were not able to build any momentum in Atlanta. The Braves beat up Steven Matz and the Mets 7-2. The loss pushes the Mets to fourth place in the NL East. The Mets head to Chicago next for a four-game series against the Cubs.
With a loss tonight and a Nationals win, the Mets dropped below Washington in the NL East standings.
