The Yankees will look to even up this year's Subway Series tonight after the Mets took Game 1 at Citi Field Monday night.
The Yankees were leading 1-0 in the sixth when Brett Gardner robbed Daniel Murphy of a two run homer with a leaping catch in center field.
After David Wright tied the game with a homer in the seventh, Murphy got another chance to be the hero and he took advantage, singling in the go-ahead run off David Robertson.
That's all the Mets would need, as they won the game 2-1.
Traditionally the teams have played six times a year: three at one stadium, three at the other. However, this year the clubs will play four games in four days.
Unless both teams make the World Series this is the only time they will square off this year.
Going into the series, fans from both sides were feeling pretty good.
"The Yankees have half the team is injured, but they're still playing really well, right around first place, somehow there getting it done, and I expect them to continue to get it done tonight," said one Yankees fan.
"I want to say, please go out, play your heart out, get a win, bring it home for these proud Mets fans that have been through it all with you guys," said one Mets fan.
Hiroki Kuroda goes for the Yankees tonight against the unbeaten Matt Harvey. The first pitch is at 7 p.m.
