Freddy Garcia gave the Yankees seven strong innings, and an eight-inning sacrifice fly gave them a late lead, but Mariano Rivera blew the save in the ninth and Ramiro Pena’s error cost them in the 10th. The Mets walked off with a 3-2 win in the Subway Series finale. One out away from a one-run win, Rivera walked a batter, gave up a single and coughed up the tying run on Ronny Paulino’s pinch hit single to right. Brett Gardner’s throw to the plate kept the Mets from winning it a batter later, but in the 10th, Pena made his second error in as many innings, opening the door for Jason Bay’s walk-off single.
