Mets win, finally...Mariners keep rolling...Trump golf ribbon cutting
NEW YORK (AP) — Seth Lugo pitched six dominant innings in a stellar spot start, Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer off Luis Severino, and the New York Mets beat the Yankees 2-0 on Sunday night to snap an eight-game skid. Frazier went deep for the second consecutive night to help the Mets prevent a Subway Series sweep at Citi Field. They ended a 10-game home losing streak and avoided an 0-9 home stand that would have matched the worst in team history.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Right fielder Mitch Haniger threw out Johnny Field at the plate to end the game, and the Seattle Mariners held off the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 for their 17th win in 22 games. Field tried to score from first on a two-out, bloop single by Carlos Gomez. James Paxton struck out 10 and Kyle Seager hit a go-ahead home run for Seattle. Nelson Cruz and Mike Zunino also homered for the Mariners.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Max Muncy homered in his third straight game, Logan Forsythe and Enrique Hernandez also connected, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 7-2. The Dodgers took the series from Atlanta and have won seven of their last nine games.
CINCINNATI (AP) —Center fielder Billy Hamilton made a bunch of key defensive plays and almost single-handedly helped the Cincinnati Reds ended their 13-game losing streak to St. Louis, beating the Cardinals 6-3. Hamilton threw out two runners and then made outstanding catches against the wall in the eighth and ninth innings. He also tripled and scored twice.
NEW YORK (AP) — The president’s company is hoping a new clubhouse opening at a Trump golf resort in New York City will revive its fortunes. It’s one of several of his courses posting disappointing numbers recently. Donald Trump’s two adult sons are cutting the ribbon on a clubhouse at the Trump Golf Links in the Bronx on Monday. Data from the city obtained in a freedom of information request by The Associated Press show revenue at the course fell 7 percent last year.
