Brett Gardner left Daniel Murphy to shake his head in the sixth when he robbed the Met second baseman of a two-run homer. Murphy found his revenge against the Yankees in the eighth when he lined a two-out RBI single to center off David Robertson. The Mets won the Subway Series opener 2-1.
The Yankees led 1-0 into the seventh when Citi Field was no longer so kind to Phil Hughes. The right-hander served up a long game-tying home run to David Wright, who provided the only run off Hughes. Hughes and Mets starter Jon Niese each pitched seven innings of one-run ball. The Yankees threatened in the ninth, but Travis Hafner popped out against Mets closer Bobby Parnell with one on to end it. The Yankees had won nine of their previous 11 against the Mets.
