Alonso’s latest laser was the Mets’ opening salvo in the nightcap. Having lost to the Yankees, 12-5, during the first game of the Subway Series doubleheader on Tuesday, the Mets managed a split with three home runs beneath the lights to win, 10-4, behind starting pitcher Jason Vargas. “We’re not going to give up,” Mets Manager Mickey Callaway said between games. At night, Yankees third baseman Gio Urshela decided to not square up when a ball headed his way. Instead, he turned his back to home plate and failed to catch the ball when it came over his head.
