In midst of bleak season, the Mets' future has arrived

It has been a 2017 worth forgetting in Flushing, but as New York plays out the string, star prospects Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith are providing a glimpse of brighter days ahead.

The Class-A NY-Penn League inducts 3 Hall of Famers before its All-Star Game Tue. night in Troy, NY -- Buck Showalter, who began managing at 29 with the champion Oneonta Yankees; Tri-City ValleyCats owner Bill Gladstone, who brought the team to Troy; & the late Warner Fusselle, a This Week in Baseball legend who broadcast every game of the Brooklyn Cyclones' first 11 seasons & the league's 1st A-S Game.

Sanchez hammers 20th homer for insurance (0:17)

Aaron Hicks crushes a 1-1 meatball from Hansel Robles deep to right field to give the Yankees the lead in the eighth inning. Remember, Hicks had an OPS over .900 when he was injured in June. This is his second homer in five games since coming off the DL and he could add some much-needed offense to the Yankee lineup.

Aaron Judge, who coming into today was batting .165 with 46 strikeouts since the All-Star break, hits his 36th home run of the season and first one since August 6th off Rafael Montero to tie the game 2-2 in the 6th inning. In his first 84 games of the 2017 season, Judge had a .329 batting AVG with 30 home runs and a 1.139 OPS.

The secret weapon in the Yankees bullpen is Chad Green, who really has been better than Dellin Betances or Aroldis Chapman. He tosses 2.2 scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 1.95. Green's key is a high spin rate that gives him the illusion of a rising fastball. Batters swing through the pitch, a reason he's generated 74 K's in 50.2 innings.

Judge knots up game with 36th homer (0:30)

The Yankees load the bases with one out in the fourth against Rafael Montero, but score just one run. They get runners at the corners in the fifth with two outs, but leave them stranded. Montero is probably done after 92 pitches, although the Mets had nobody warming up as the fifth ended.

Claire Smith throws first pitch at Yankees Stadium (0:19)

Yankees starter Luis Cessa is removed in the top of the fifth after two visits from Joe Girardi and the athletic trainer. After the first visit -- Cessa had kind of pulled at his shoulder -- Cessa remained in and gave up a base hit and Girardi then decided to take him out. At 66 pitches, he was nearing his pitch limit for the game, so could just be a case of being extra cautious.

Judge strikes out in 31st straight game (0:15)

The Subway Series doesn't mean much for the Mets this year, but they'd still like to stick it to the Yankees and Curtis Granderson and Yoenis Cespedes homered in the third inning of Luis Cessna to give the Mets the early lead. Rafael Montero has looked good with four K's and one hit, hitting 96 mph with his fastball.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

"Los Hermanos": José Reyes, Amed Rosario, Juan Lagares y Yoenis Céspedes. Mets have 7 Latin players in their starting lineup today: Rosario at SS, Asdrúbal Cabrera at 2B, Céspedes in LF, Wilmer Flores at 3B, René Rivera at catcher, Juan Lagares in CF, and Rafael Montero as the starting pitcher.

Granderson, Cespedes crank third-inning homers (0:50)
