Maybe the Yankees have stopped the bleeding — and they have the Mets, in part, to thank.
The Yankees swept the Mets in The Bronx, winning their third straight overall with a 4-2 victory in front of another sellout crowd of 49,217.
But it came with plenty of tension before Wandy Peralta got Francisco Lindor to fly out to center with the bases loaded to end it.
The Mets were down by two runs with two outs in the ninth, when pinch-hitter Tyler Naquin drew a walk against Clarke Schmidt.
Brandon Nimmo reached on an infield single and Starling Marte walked to load the bases and knock Schmidt out of the game.
Peralta came in and Lindor nearly tied the game, but his liner to left landed foul.
It came after the Yankees got a go-ahead single from Andrew Benintendi in the seventh.
