In the second of two exhibition games against the Mets, the New York Yankees poured on a barrage of home runs to win 6-0.
The New York Yankees played their second of two exhibition games against the Mets on Sunday night, and it went about the same way the first one did. On Saturday night the Yankees beat the Mets 9-3 despite playing without several of their stars.
On Sunday night in the Bronx, the Yankees starting lineup looked almost like what the starting lineup will look like for opening night on Thursday against the Nationals.
Sunday night’s lineup looked like this:
- DJ LeMahieu, 2B
- Aaron Judge, RF
- Gleyber Torres, SS
- Giancarlo Stanton, DH
- Aaron Hicks, CF
- Gary Sanchez, C
- Luke Voit, 1B
- Brett Gardner, LF
- Matt Duffy, 3B
- Jordan Montgomery, P
With the exception of Matt Duffy at third base, this is exactly what you should expect to see Aaron Boone and the Yankees put out on the field on Thursday night. If this is the case, the Yankees and Yankees fans should be excited about the shortened 2020 season.

The Yankees poured it onto a team they will play a tenth of their games against this season. Aaron Judge hit two home runs, and Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez, and Luke Voit also hit home runs as well, adding up to six total runs for a 6-0 Yankees win and a 15-3 total score over two games against the Mets.
The Yankees still have one exhibition game remaining before the season begins, but they should feel pretty dang good right about now. With Michael King and Jordan Montgomery as their starting pitchers, the Yankees still managed to give up only three total runs between two games while scoring 15.
If they can do this, imagine what might happen when Gerrit Cole, Masahiro Tanaka, James Paxton, and some of their other starting pitchers take the mound. The Yankees are in maybe an even better position than we might’ve thought heading into the season, and only time will tell just how good they can be.
