Soriano’s Double Gives Yanks 1-0 Win
NEW YORK (AP) — Derek Jeter watched the last four outs of his final regular-season Subway Series game from the bench, pulled off the field during a double switch in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night as the New York Yankees held off the Mets 1-0.
Alfonso Soriano’s RBI double in the seventh broke up a scoreless duel at Citi Field between pitchers making their major league debuts. Rookie reliever Dellin Betances struck out six in a row as the Yankees earned a split of this year’s series between crosstown rivals with their second straight shutout.
David Robertson got David Wright to ground out to Jeter’s replacement at shortstop, Brendan Ryan, with runners at the corners to end the eighth.
Jeter left after an 0-for-4 night. The Yankees captain came out when Robertson entered to face Wright. Robertson pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save.
