Yankees Walk Off on Mets to Snap Seven Game Losing Streak
Clint Frazier scored the winning run on Dellin Betances’ wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees averted their longest losing streak in a quarter-century Saturday with a 2-1 victory over the crosstown Mets. J.A. Happ pitched brilliantly into the eighth and Luke Voit homered early at Yankee Stadium as the injury-ravaged Bronx Bombers stopped a seven-game slide that followed six straight wins. They haven’t dropped eight in a row since August 1995 _ just before their most recent dynasty of three consecutive World Series titles and four in all from 1996-2000. The Mets had won three straight and six of eight, including a Subway Series doubleheader sweep Friday at Yankee Stadium.
