Gary Sanchez 2

Gary Sanchez delivered the first pinch-hit, extra-innings grand slam in Yankees history, Deivi Garcia made a strong impression in his big league debut and New York beat the crosstown Mets 5-2 to complete a doubleheader sweep. The Yankees stormed back in the opener, erasing a five-run lead with two outs in the seventh to win 8-7 in eight innings. Aaron Hicks lined a tying, two-run homer in the seventh, and Gio Urshela hit a game-ending single off Edwin Diaz an inning later. The Yankees won the final three games of this five-game Subway Series, snapping a seven-game skid that was their longest since 2017
