    Gray outpitches deGrom, leads Yankees over Mets 5-4

    Sonny Gray and the New York Yankees could walk off with smiles after another win in the Subway Series. Everyone except closer Aroldis Chapman. Gray outpitched Jacob deGrom, Jacoby Ellsbury and Gary Sanchez homered, and the Yankees held off the Mets 5-4 Tuesday night to sweep both rivalry games in the Bronx.

    New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez has endured a lot of criticism over his defense recently, but he got through it with the help of two very famous mentors. Sanchez talked about how he had lunch with former Yankee Alex Rodriguez and his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, both of whom helped him work through his defensive slump. “We talked about pretty much everything,” Sanchez said via an interpreter after homering in Tuesday’s win over the New York Mets, via Pete Caldera of USA Today. “Everything that comes from him, it’s positive. We talked a little bit about defense, creating a routine, following your routine, preparing for games.” Though Rodriguez was the ballplayer, it didn’t stop his very famous
