The Mets losing streak has reached eight.
The Yankees topped the Mets 4-3 Saturday in the second game of the 2018 Subway Series. The Mets have not won in the month of June and have dropped 15 of their last 18 games.
The Mets hit a pair of home runs in the first and held a 3-1 lead through five innings. But Yankees infielder Miguel Andújar hit a two-run homer in the sixth to tie the score and Aaron Judge blasted his 18th home run of the season two innings later to put the Yankees in front for good.
