Mets And Yankees Split Subway Series Doubleheader, Raider To Be Featured On Knocks, US Sets WWC Record

Grace Higgins | June 12th, 2019

It was a unique day for the New York Yankees and Mets on Tuesday as the two teams would play not one but two Subway Series games on the day. In the opener, the Yankees exerted their dominance on proceedings, winning 12-5 on the back of a massive five-run fourth inning. The got home runs from Gio Urshela and Luke Voit in that frame, and along with setting their season-high for hits, at 15, they were able to pull away from their crosstown rivals. In the nightcap, however, the Mets would have something to say about it all. They would chase starting pitcher James Paxton, who gave up six earned runs in 2 and 2/3 innings, very early on in the game. A three-run shot by Pete Alonso in the first inning set the tone for the entire evening, and it eventually led to a 10-4 victory for the National Leaguers and a split of the series. J.D. Davis and Carlos Gomez also hit homers of their own, while Jason Vargas pitched a solid six innings, giving up three earned runs.

USA Today

The Oakland Raiders look a lot different than they did a year or two ago, and as such, they look like they will be well worth the follow of the show ‘Hard Knocks’ as a result. The news comes after they fought the idea for months, though it seems they have finally succumbed to the idea now and have agreed to do it. The Raiders have a tough season ahead of them, with no home games for a nearly two month stretches and with games in three countries as well, making it one of the most unique seasons in the history of the NFL already. Controversial stars like Richie Incognito and Antonio Brown, among others, are set to be featured, or at least could be, so it might be the most compelling version of the show yet.

The News-Heral

The United States Women’s team set a record on Tuesday in France at the FIFA World Cup by demolishing Thailand 13-0 in their group stage opener. The USA got five goals from Alex Morgan, while two others (Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis) added two. Morgan’s haul is a tie for the most scored by one player in a single WC game, while the team smashed the previous record, which was 11-0, as they controlled the ball for 75% of the match while outshooting their opponents 39-2. It makes you wonder just why the tournament expanded when teams give such an awful performance at the showpiece event, but even with that said, you can’t take any credit away from the Americans and their accomplishment.
