Rivera Blows Save, Mets Win in 10 Innings: The 2011 edition of the Subway Series concluded in dramatic fashion Sunday. Mr. Automatic, Mariano Rivera, gave up the game-tying run in the bottom of the ninth inning -- the game-winning run was thrown out at the plate by Yankee outfielder Brett Gardner -- and Mets outfielder Jason Bay delivered with a walk-off hit in the bottom of the 10th. The victory helped the Mets avoid a three-game sweep of the Yankees, who had a seven-game winning streak snapped.â†µ
The Yankees begin their post-interleague schedule Monday night at the Cleveland Indians (6:35 p.m.), while the Mets travel to the west coast to play at the Los Angeles Dodgers (9:10 p.m.).â†µ
