After leaving 4-0 in the first confrontation of the day, Gary Sanchez went to the bench in the second crash of the day. With the tied game, for the second time that day, took the turn as emergent in the 10th inning with the bases loaded and hit a Grand Slam to guide the victory of New York Yankees on New York Mets by 5-2 to stay with the double billboard.
Sánchez hit the primer Grand Slam for a pinch hitter in extrainnings in the history of Yankees to give him his third victory in five games of the Subway Series before the Mets, a compromise that had to be played with two double billboards after two positive tests for COVID-19 among members of the Queens suspended the first three games a week earlier.
Gary shot a fast ball on account of 2-2 of Drew Smith (0-1) to the stands of left Garden to give the team an advantage of 5-1. Was the first home run as pinch-hitter and the second Grand Slam in the race of the receiver who is going through a slump.
Before Sunday’s session, the general manager Brian Cashman supported the work of Sánchez arguing that it is his mejor catcher on both sides of the ball. The team manager ensured that the unexpected interruptions in the team’s season is the reason why the Dominican has maintained a low offensive production.
Yankees faces will be seen again Mets for a single game, the last to be made up after the postponement of the series due to the two positive tests of COVID-19. This confrontation will be the September 3 before Yankees travel to Baltimore, the same day that Mets will be returning from that same city.
