Yankees 8, Mets 7: Losing streak snapped!

Baseball in New York City began on Saturday night with a stirring ceremony paying respect to those we lost as well as honoring the heroic first responders who put their lives on the line. The players from both teams stood side-by-side, unified in their remembrance of that day 20 years ago.

It’s moments of reflection like those that remind us of what really matters in life. Still, there was a baseball game to be played with crucial playoff implications for both teams. The Yankees jumped out to an early 5-0 advantage before the Mets came roaring back to lead, 7-5.
