David Robertson punched out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save against the Mets on Wednesday.

He allowed Amed Rosario to reach base on a wild-pitch strikeout but was spotless other than that. Robertson was trotted out for the ninth inning because regular closer Aroldis Chapman was unavailable due to a tender hamstring. This was Robertson's first save since joining the Yankees in a deadline trade with the White Sox. He has 14 saves overall with a 2.25 ERA and 68 strikeouts in 48 innings.

Jaime Garcia allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings and had to settle for a no-decision as his team beat the Mets on Wednesday.

He struck out three batters, issued three walks and surrendered five base hits, including a solo home run by catcher Rene Rivera in the fifth inning. Garcia has been decent this year, notching a 5-8 record with a 4.52 ERA in 22 starts split between the Braves, Twins and Yankees.

Juan Lagares went 2-for-4 and scored a run in a crosstown loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

He led off the first inning with a double and came home to score on a sacrifice fly lifted by Yoenis Cespedes. The Mets couldn't get much going today and generated only six knocks as a team. The defensive-minded center fielder hasn't received much playing time in a crowded Mets outfield this year. He has a .276 batting average with two homers, eight RBI and 18 runs in 52 games.

Mookie Betts delivered a walk-off two-run double as the Red Sox came back to beat the Cardinals 5-4 on Wednesday.

It was Betts' third hit of the game. The Red Sox rallied from down 4-2 in the ninth on a homer from Xander Bogaerts, a pair of walks and finally Betts' double off the Green Monster with two outs. Betts had three RBI in all, putting him at 75 for the year. He had been slumping since the All-Star break, hitting just .246/.311/.328 in 122 at-bats.

Eduardo Rodriguez surrendered four runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

All four runs came in the second, and there's a good chance Rodriguez wouldn't have even survived the inning if not for a baserunning blunder from Matt Carpenter that got him his second out. Having made it through, he settled down nicely; of the final nine hitters he faced, the only batter to reach against him did so on an error. Rodriguez's next start will come Monday or Tuesday against the Indians.

Matt Harvey (shoulder) spun three shutout innings Wednesday in a rehab start for Low-A Brooklyn.

He finished with three strikeouts and only allowed one hit over 36 pitches. Harvey fared much better Wednesday than he did in his previous rehab outing on Saturday (1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB). He'll still need a couple starts to get his pitch count back up but it won't be long before Harvey is back in the Mets' starting rotation.

Trevor Rosenthal was pulled from a save chance after giving up a homer and a walk to the two batters he faced Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Rosenthal's velocity was down tonight, but there was no visit from the trainer before he was pulled. Rosenthal entered the game with a two-run lead, so he wasn't charged with a blown save, even though the Cardinals went on to blow the game. The two earned runs Rosenthal ended up being charged with were the first he had allowed since July 20. If he's hurt, the Cardinals would probably go to a closer-by-committee, using Seung-hwan Oh, Tyler Lyons and John Brebbia.

Robert Gsellman let in three runs -- two earned -- in 5 1/3 innings and did not get a decision against the Yankees on Wednesday.

He surrendered only four hits but issued three walks while notching just two strikeouts. He served up a home run to Aaron Judge but there's no shame in that. The big right-hander has failed to live up to the hype generated by the 2.42 ERA he delivered over eight games (seven starts) in his MLB debut a year ago. He has five wins and five losses with a 5.98 ERA and a woeful 1.60 WHIP in 81 1/3 innings this year.
