Happy Recap: Game 49 - Yankees (1) at Mets (2) - Mets handle Rivera in the ninth for Victory

N.Y. Yankees (30-21)000001000172
N.Y. Mets (20-29)«000000002272

W: S. Rice (3-3) L: M. Rivera (0-1)
HR: NYY - None   NYM - None


Mariano Rivera was given the honor of throwing out the first pitch in his final scheduled appearance at Citi Field. His final one wasn't as joyous an occasion for the legendary closer, however.

The New York Mets came through with three consecutive hits against Rivera during a two-run ninth-inning rally that gave the club a dramatic 2-1 victory over the crosstown-rival New York Yankees and a sweep of the two-game interleague set.

Daniel Murphy greeted Rivera (0-1) with a bloop double down the left-field line in the bottom of the ninth and David Wright followed with a single up the middle to bring home the tying run. Lucas Duda then dropped in a base hit to right that plated Wright and gave the Mets their first three-game win streak since April 6-8.

Remarkably, each of the Mets' last six triumphs have come in their last at- bat. They downed the Yankees by a 2-1 count in Monday's opener on Murphy's tie-breaking RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Mets honored the retiring Rivera by having him toss the ceremonial pregame offering to his former counterpart on the other side of town, John Franco, but weren't as gracious in handing the 43-year-old his first blown save in 19 chances this season.

The comeback also resulted in the Bronx Bombers' first three-game slide of the year heading into Wednesday's matchup between the teams at Yankee Stadium.

The magic carpet ride Matt Harvey took the New York Mets on earlier this season is beginning to fray and the right-hander hopes to regain his dominant form Tuesday versus the New York Yankees at Citi Field.

Harvey was 4-0 with a 0.93 earned run average in his first four outings, but has since gone 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA over his last six appearances. The Mets have alternated wins and losses in that time and Harvey posted a no-decision in last Wednesday's 7-4 loss to Cincinnati. He was tagged for a season-high four runs and nine hits in 6 1/3 innings and is 5-0 with a 1.93 ERA in 10 starts.

The hard-throwing Harvey, a Yankees fan growing up, has never faced the Bronx Bombers and is 2-0 with a 2.13 ERA in six home starts.

Hiroki Kuroda will counter Harvey for the Yankees and the leads the ballclub in wins (6) and earned run average (2.67).

Kuroda lasted only two innings of his previous outing as he took a line drive off of his right calf in a 6-3 loss at Baltimore. Kuroda wasn't sharp in his brief stint on the hill and was torched for five runs and eight hits, falling to 6-3 in 10 starts. He had won two straight and six of his previous seven decisions.

The Japanese right-hander hasn't had much success in eight career starts against the Mets and is only 2-5 with a 4.81 ERA.

The Mets squeezed out a 2-1 win on Monday in the opener of the Subway Series thanks to Daniel Murphy's RBI single that plated Jordany Valdespin with two out in the eighth inning. Murphy was robbed of a two-run homer by Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner in the sixth inning and was glad to get another chance to step up.

"I was thinking I would get another chance," Murphy said. "I was hoping I would get another chance."

David Wright tied the game at 1-1 with a leadoff home run in the seventh inning for the Mets, who have prevailed in consecutive games since a five-game slide. Brandon Lyon picked up the win in relief of starter Jon Niese, who tossed seven innings of one-run ball.

Bobby Parnell struck out two and worked around a walk in the ninth for his eighth save of the season.

Daniel Murphy's eighth-inning base hit gave the New York Mets their first lead and Bobby Parnell made it stand up in the ninth to secure a 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees in the opener of their Subway Series at Citi Field.

Murphy, robbed of a two-run homer earlier in the contest, plated the go-ahead run with a two-out single to center.

"I was thinking I would get another chance," Murphy said. "I was hoping I would get another chance."

David Wright tied the contest an inning earlier with a solo homer and also tripled in the Mets' second straight win.

A pitching duel between Mets starter Jonathon Niese and the Yankees' Phil Hughes was ultimately decided by the bullpen.

David Robertson (3-1) nearly escaped the jam in the eighth inning when Robinson Cano threw out Mike Baxter at the plate for the second out, but then served up Murphy's single in the following at-bat.

Brandon Lyon (2-2) relieved Niese after a seven-inning performance to toss a scoreless eighth. Parnell worked around a one-out walk to notch his eighth save.

Brett Gardner tripled, scored the Yankees only run -- despite the team recording nine hits -- and brought back Murphy's shot over the wall in the sixth.

Hughes was dealing through his first six innings and had retired 10 of his last 11, but Wright threw a wrench into his excellent start with a leadoff homer in the seventh.

"It's tough, he's not a guy who's easy to strikeout," said Hughes of Wright. "You have to make a quality pitch."

Hughes allowed just four hits and struck out six, but with his pitch count at 101, the Yankees went to Robertson to start the eighth.

Baxter lined a one-out ground-rule double to put the go-ahead run on, and after pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin walked, both runners moved up on a passed ball.

Ruben Tejada grounded one toward Cano and the second baseman fired home to catcher Chris Stewart, who tagged a streaking Baxter just before he could touch the plate. Murphy, though, came through to put the Mets in front.

Both pitchers were cruising along, with neither team posting a run through the first five innings. However, the Yankees made the first dent in the sixth by taking advantage of some shaky Mets defense.

Lucas Duda made the mistake of diving for a ball clearly out of his reach on the speedy Gardner's shallow pop into left. The ball snuck past the left fielder and Gardner raced into third with a triple. Jayson Nix then lofted a base hit into right for a 1-0 Yankees lead.

Niese had two of the first three Mets' hits, reaching with a single in sixth. Murphy looked to put them in front when he sent a blast into left, but Gardner backed up on the track, reached up and snagged the ball from going over the wall.

Game Notes

The team's will play the last of two games at Citi Field on Tuesday before moving to Yankee Stadium for another two-game set ... The Yankees hit into three double plays ... Nix had two hits ... Niese struck out four and allowed eight hits ... Duda went 0-for-4 to end a 10-game hitting streak ... Yankees third baseman David Adams went 1-for-4. He has a hit in 10 of 11 games since being recalled from the minors.

The 2013 edition of the Subway Series gets underway on Monday when the New York Yankees head to Citi Field for the first two games of a home-and-home series against the Mets.

The final two games will be contested at Yankee Stadium.

"I think it's exciting for the fans. I think it's exciting for the players. I think it's a great atmosphere," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "So, yeah, I'm excited for it."

Girardi's club has dominated this series of late, winning 11 of the previous 14 matchups.

The Yankees, who hold a percentage points lead at the top of the American League East, head into this matchup stumbling a bit with losses in three of the last five games, following an 8-3 setback to the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

CC Sabathia (4-4), winless in his last five starts, was tagged for a season- high seven runs on seven hits over seven frames.

"I'm hurting the team," Sabathia said. "I'm not helping the team out. I just need to get better."

Recap: Game 73 - Yanks at Mets - Dickey Becomes Human, Mets Lose 6-5

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

N.Y. Yankees (43-28) «004010010673
N.Y. Mets (39-34)0010130005122

W: B. Logan (2-0) L: M. Batista (1-2)
S: R. Soriano (15)

HR: NYY - N. Swisher (11),R. Cano (16)   NYM - None

Robinson Cano's home run in the top of the eighth inning lifted the New York Yankees over the New York Mets, 6-5, in the rubber match of the Subway Series at Citi Field.

Nick Swisher added a three-run homer while Mark Teixeira brought home a pair of runs for the Yankees, who took the last two games of this series on the heels of a three-game losing streak.

Boone Logan (2-0) earned the win with 1 1/3 perfect innings in relief of CC Sabathia, who allowed five runs -- one earned -- on nine hits and two walks over 5 2/3 innings.

Rafael Soriano worked around a two-out single in the ninth to secure his 15th save of the season.

Miguel Batista (1-2) gave up Cano's game-deciding home run to take the loss for the Mets.

Mets starter R.A. Dickey had won his last six starts and was coming off consecutive one-hitters, but was touched for five runs on five hits and three walks over a five-inning start.

Andres Torres and Ruben Tejada had two RBI apiece in a losing effort.

Batista returned for his second inning of work in the eighth after the Mets rallied in the sixth to tie the game at 5-5, but Cano quickly put the Yankees back on top by hammering a changeup well over the wall in straightaway center field.

The Mets had a chance to answer in the bottom of the eighth when Torres singled off David Robertson with two outs, stole second and advanced to third on a balk, but Tejada's grounder to third ended the threat.

Soriano then entered for the ninth and opened the frame by winning a 10-pitch battle with David Wright, who swung through a low slider for the first out.

After pinch-hitter Daniel Murphy lined out to Cano, Lucas Duda pulled a base hit into right field. Soriano, though, induced a fly ball to right by Ike Davis to seal the victory for the Yankees.

The Mets stranded a pair of baserunners on third over the first two innings and the Yankees left the bases loaded in the second before the Yankees opened the scoring in the third.

After a pair of walks by Curtis Granderson and Cano around an Alex Rodriguez infield single filled the bags with one out, Teixeira lifted a sacrifice fly to right field to bring home Granderson.

The run snapped a string of 44 2/3 scoreless innings on the mound for Dickey, which is the second longest streak in Mets franchise history.

Swisher then made it a 4-0 game with a three-run home run over the right- center field wall.

The Mets answered with a run in the home third when Torres walked, advanced to third on Chris Stewart's throwing error on a steal attempt and came home on Tejada's sacrifice fly, but the Yankees got the run back in the fifth as Granderson was hit by a pitch to start the frame and later came home on a Teixeira fielder's choice to second.

Wright had an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth inning to make it a 5-2 game before the Mets fought back in the sixth to knot the game at five.

Justin Turner started the rally by reaching first with one out on a Cano fielding error. Ronny Cedeno followed with a base hit to center but was immediately erased on a fielder's choice off the bat of Josh Thole.

Pinch-hitter Vinny Rottino worked a walk to load the bases and Torres slapped a single just under the glove of Teixeira on the right side of the infield to plate Turner and Thole.

Cory Wade was the summoned out of the bullpen and Tejada greeted the reliever by lining Wade's third pitch to left, scoring Rottino.

Wright followed with a walk to load the bases again, but pinch-hitter Kirk Nieuwenhuis went down swinging to keep it a 5-5 game.

Game Notes

Dwight Gooden holds the Mets franchise record for scoreless innings with a stretch of 49 straight in 1985...Wright extended his hit streak to 14 games...The Yankees lead the all-time series between the teams, 119-82...The Yankees hit 3-for-8 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base...The Mets went 3-for-9 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10...Sabathia failed to pitch at least six innings for the first time this season.

SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
C. Sabathia (L) 14 9-3 3.556.15-14.586/18ATLW9.0722-123.03.13
R. Dickey (R) 14 11-1 2.006.06-01.206/18BALW9.0103-025.10.00

R.A. Dickey tries to continue his amazing run this evening when the New York Mets close the 2012 edition of the Subway Series against the Yankees at Citi Field.

"For me, it's another game on the schedule," Dickey said. "I think that helps me put it in perspective. It's one of three games that we have to play in this series against a good team. I think it's been built up to some kind of crescendo, but I will attack it no differently."

Dickey has been magnificent for the Mets this season and on Monday became the first major leaguer to throw five straight games with no earned runs and at least eight strikeouts in each, while becoming the third pitcher since 1945 to hurl back-to-back one-hitters, joining Sam McDowell (1966) and Dave Stieb (1988).

After holding the Tampa Bay Rays to just one hit on June 13, the 37-year-old knuckelballer allowed one hit and struck out a career-high 13 to beat the Baltimore Orioles on Monday to win his sixth straight start, ninth consecutive decision and improved to 11-1 on the year, while lowering his ERA to 2.00.

Dickey is also the first NL pitcher to toss consecutive one hitters since the Boston Braves' Jim Tobin in 1944.

"I'm going to leave it to you guys to explain it," Dickey said. "I'm just going to try to be in the moment with it. I don't really feel much more confident than I did the last couple years. I've always felt like I have a pretty good knuckleball. I worked hard to do that."

Over his last six starts Dickey has pitched to a 0.18 ERA and is 42 2/3 straight innings without allowing an earned run are the most by a Mets pitcher since Dwight Gooden went 49 innings without giving up one in 1985.

"A lot of people haven't seen R.A. Dickey do what he's doing right now," Mets manager Terry Collins said on Saturday. "I just hope tomorrow night he's as effective as he has been, because it'll be fun to watch for the person that's heard about him but never seen him pitch."

Dickey has faced the Yankees nine times (3 starts) and is 3-1 against them with a 2.30 ERA.
