Amed Rosario’s pinch-hit walk-off HR powers New York Mets to victory (Video)

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - AUGUST 25: Amed Rosario #1 of the New York Mets field a ground ball off the bat of Jonathan Villar #2 of the Miami Marlins for an out in the second inning at Citi Field on August 25, 2020 in New York City.

The New York Mets walk it off in the Bronx to sweep a doubleheader against the New York Yankees for the first time in Subway Series history. 

Friday provided a number of firsts in Subway Series history. It marks the first time the New York Mets have swept a doubleheader from the New York Yankees. It’s additionally the first time the Mets have hit a walk-off home run against the Yankees, and the most confusing piece, it’s the first time they hit a walk-off at Yankee Stadium.

The signature moment came from the struggling shortstop, Amed Rosario. With a runner on first and nobody out, Mets manager Luis Rojas trusted Rosario to get the job done against Yanks closer Aroldis Chapman.

Rosario entered the night 2-for-2 with a home run against Chapman in his career. Those numbers only improved after this at-bat.

With his walk-off win, the Mets move to 15-16 on the year. They’re currently the second Wild Card team in the National League.

The Subway Series continues Saturday at 1:05 p.m. ET. The Mets are sending Robert Gsellman to the mound to face off against the Yankees and J.A. Happ.
