The Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey took in nearly $3.5 million in sports bets during its first nine days of accepting such bets.

And most of that came from two weekends that sandwiched a dead period for major professional sports caused by baseball's All-Star break Malik Jackson Jersey , when there was little to bet on, with basketball and soccer World Cup over, and football and hockey months away from beginning their seasons.

Meadowlands operator Jeff Gural told The Associated Press it accepted just under $3.5 million worth of sports bets since it began taking them on July 14.

"We did OK," Gural said Monday. "Our goal the first weekend was to exceed $1million which we did. The next four days were quiet with nothing to bet on due to the All-Star break."

This past Saturday, with baseball having resumed, the track took in over $650,000, and additional bets on baseball and other sports came in on Sunday.

Gural said he is pleased with the track's initial performance "despite the fact that we are not at full strength and only have 10 live tellers windows open."

The FanDuel Sportsbook at the Meadowlands will be expanded. It is located in East Rutherford, in the same sports complex six miles from New York City where the NFL's New York Giants and Jets play.

So far, two tracks, the Meadowlands and Monmouth Park, and two Atlantic City casinos, the Borgata and Ocean Resort, offer sports betting in New Jersey. But many others have applied for permission to begin offering sports betting, in person and online, before the start of the NFL season in September.

Monmouth and the casinos reaped $16.4 million in the first two weeks of June.

New Jersey won a U.S. Supreme Court case on May 14 clearing the way for all 50 states to offer legal sports betting should they so desire. It began offering sports betting on June 14.

The latest statistics on how much the casinos and tracks took in from sports betting will be released by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement on Aug. 14.

— The Yankees blew a two-run lead, committed three errors, struck out 11 times and lost Wednesday night to the last-place Marlins.

Bring on Baltimore.

Lance Lynn gave up five runs in the sixth inning http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-shaquem-griffin-jersey , and New York’s four-game winning streak ended with a sloppy 9-3 defeat.

Trailing first-place Boston by nine games in the AL East, the Yankees can’t afford losses to last-place teams, and manager Aaron Boone knows it. After a day off New York will begin a four-game series at Baltimore, which has the worst record in baseball.

“We didn’t do a lot great down here,” Boone said. “We’ve got to get after it starting Friday. Obviously these are important. We’ve got to play better than we did tonight. We’re getting into that crunch time.”

The loss came hours after All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman went on the disabled list with left knee tendinitis. He joined three injured regulars on the Yankees’ disabled list, and the offense looked depleted as New York split the two-game series.

The Yankees totaled 10 hits in the final 17 innings against Miami.

Giancarlo Stanton, playing in Miami for the first time since the Marlins traded him last November, went 1 for 3 with an RBI and finished 3 for 9 in the series. He remained at 299 career homers.

Lynn (8-9) had a 2-0 lead in the sixth, but Miguel Rojas‘ three-run homer put the Marlins ahead to stay.

“A couple of infield hits, and then a home run,” Lynn said. “I made one bad pitch, and it costs you three runs.”

What made his fastball to Rojas a bad pitch?

“It went over the fence,” Lynn said.

The homer was the 10th for Rojas, who had never hit more than one in a season before this year.

Attendance was 25,547, including lots of Yankees fans, and many of them had departed by the time Miami’s J.T. Riddle delivered a two-run, pinch-hit homer in the eighth.

Neil Walker drove in two runs for New York with a double and a sacrifice fly Josey Jewell Color Rush Jersey , and Stanton had an RBI infield hit in the seventh.

Miami’s Trevor Richards allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings and struck out nine. Jarlin Garcia (2-2) retired both batters he faced.

Lynn was charged with five runs for the second game in a row. He worked 5 1/3 innings.

BRAIN CRAMP

A mental lapse cost the Yankees in the seventh. When Miami’s Brian Anderson tried to steal second and Starlin Castro took ball four, catcher Austin Romine made a needless and wild throw to second. That allowed Anderson to advance to third, and he scored an unearned run on a groundout.

SLUMP

Yankees first baseman Greg Bird went 0 for 10 in the series, dropping his batting average to .202.

“It’s not fun going out and not performing,” he said. “You’ve just got to keep going in anything, in life. That’s what I fall back on.”

FAMILY MOTIVATION

Rojas’ mother, sister and grandfather, who all live in his native Venezuela, attended the game.

“They don’t spend that much time with me here in the States,” he said, “but when they come here I try to play with a little more intensity, because I want them to enjoy their time here.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Yankees: RHP David Robertson, who has been nursing a tender shoulder, said he was available to pitch.

UP NEXT

Yankees: LHP CC Sabathia (7-4, 3.32 ERA) is scheduled to start for the first time since Aug. 12 at Baltimore on Friday. Sabathia has been sidelined with right knee inflammation. The Yankees are only 6-6 this year against the Orioles.

Marlins: RHP Elieser Hernandez (2-6, 5.08) is scheduled to start Thursday when Miami opens a four-game series at home against first-place Atlanta.
