Pitching in relief on Rafael Montero, Hansel Robles gave up a go-ahead home run during the eighth inning Monday night as the Mets lost, 4-2, to the Yankees.
Robles entered the game to pitch a scoreless, two-strikeout seventh inning. He returned the following inning, but immediately allowed a game-breaking home run to Aaron Hicks.
The majority of pitches thrown by Robles were either up or in the strike zone.
"If I can throw in, I'll throw in," Robles said, when asked if he's trying to throw more pitches inside. "I can only control so much."
