ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Yankees slugger Aaron Judge led off the nightcap with his American League-record 62nd home run and Gerrit Cole set the franchise single-season strikeouts record even as New York lost 3-2 to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night for a doubleheader split.

Brandon Nimmo, Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeill opened with three straight homers to spark the Mets to an 8-0 win over the Washington Nationals and a sweep of a doubleheader but New York was eliminated from the NL East race. The Mets won the first game, 4-2. The Atlanta Braves clinched the division by beating Miami 2-1. A few groans could be heard from the Mets crowd, who earlier were chanting “Let’s Go Marlins.” The Mets will face either the Padres or Phillies in a best-of-three wild-card series starting Friday in New York.
