Rodón and Bader lead the Yankees to beat the New York Mets

Carlos Rodón took his first victory in four starts with the New York Yankees, who had the offensive spark provided by Harrison Bader and beat the Mets of the same city 3-1 on Wednesday, to split honors in the two games of the Subway Series.

Bader had three hits and scored twice at Yankee Stadium, including an aggressive baserunning and a head-slider at home plate.

Rodon (1-3) outpitched another left-hander, Jose Quintana, before four Yankees relievers combined to retire all 10 batters they faced.

Clay Holmes pitched the ninth inning for his 14th save in 17 chances, giving the Yankees a division honors in four games against the Mets this season. The rivals from the same city split honors as well last month, during two matchups at Citi Field.

It was an encouraging outing for Rodon, who got off to a rocky start with the Yankees after signing a $162 million, six-year free agent deal in December. A two-time All-Star, Rodón missed more than three months early in the season with forearm and back injuries.

He then lost his first three starts, posting a 7.36 ERA.

Quintana (0-2) allowed three runs — two earned — and six hits in six innings.

For the Mets, Puerto Rican Francisco Lindor 2-0. Venezuelan Francisco Álvarez 4-1 with a run scored.

For the Yankees, Venezuelans Gleyber Torres 4-1, Oswald Peraza 3-0 with an RBI.
