Mets LHP Steven Matz allowed three runs in six innings against the Yankees on Saturday night.
All three of the runs allowed by Matz came via home run: Gleyber Torres took Matz deep in the third inning and Miguel Andujar added a two-run homer in the sixth inning after Gary Sanchez walked.
"Really bad pitch there in the sixth inning, and it cost us the game essentially," Matz said of Andujar's home run. That pitch is going to sit with me the rest of the night," Matz said.
The costly walk to Sanchez was one of four total walks for Matz, who had not walked that many batters since May 11. And prior to Saturday night's game, Matz had not allowed a home run since May 19 against the D-Backs.
Matz finished his outing with six strikeouts across 105 pitches.
Saturday's outing marked the fourth straight quality start for Matz, who had allowed two runs or fewer in his two most recent starts.
Matz now has a 3.53 ERA after 12 starts this season for the Mets.
