Found May 27, 2013 on MetsZilla:
The New York Mets overcame a one-run deficit behind the left arm of Jon Niese and the bats of David Wright and Daniel Murphy defeating the New York Yankees, 2-1, taking game one of the 2013 Subway Series. The come-from-behind win marked the tenth such victory of the season for the Mets and their seventh win in their last at-bat.  The clubs last five wins have all been come-from-behind. The Mets improved to 7-8 in one-run games. PLAIN NIESE-TY: Jon Niese tossed seven strong innings on Monday evening, allowing just one run on eight hits as his efforts were rewarded with a no-decision. Niese put together one of his best starts of the year, tossing five scoreless frames — including a stretch of retiring seven straight batters — before a mis-play by Lucas Duda in the sixth led to the Yankees first  run of the game.  It was the second time in his last three starts in which he completed seven innings. He has allowed just three earned runs over that stretch (20 1/3 IP) lowering his ERA to 4.40 in the process. #IMWITH28:  Daviel Murphy continued his hot hitting when he drilled a two-out RBI single in the bottom half of the eighth inning to give the Mets a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish.  Murphy improved to 8-for-14 (.571) with two-outs and runners in scoring position.  Murphy has collected a hit in seven of his last ten games, lifting his season average to .299 in the process. After Ike Davis struck out to start the frame, Mike Baxter got things going with a one-out ground-rule double off Yankees set-up man David Robertson.  Jordany Valdespin, who was called upon to pinch-hit for Jon Niese, worked a seven-pitch walk, before both runners advanced into scoring position on a passed ball. With the infield in, Ruben Tejada slapped a slow roller to second.  Robinson Cano fielded the grounder and tossed a bullet to the plate, nailing Baxter for the innings second out.  Just when it seemed as if the Mets would squander another scoring opportunity, Daniel Murphy ripped a single up the middle, plating Valdespin with the go-ahead run. DUDA BLUNDER: Brett Gardner blooped a should-be single just in front of Lucas Duda in left field to start the top of the sixth inning.  Duda, however, attempted a diving play on the blooper as the ball rolled passed him, allowing Gardner to reach third with a stand-up triple.  Gardner plated the games first run just one batter later when Lance Nix singled to right. IKKKE: I, like most Mets fans, was hoping Ike’s two-run go-ahead single on Sunday night was the hit he needed to jump start his season.  Instead, Davis responded by going hit-less on Monday evening while striking out in all three of his plate appearances.  At this point, if Ike could hit his weight I would be happy. The sad part to that is he would need a serious hit-streak to get his .155 current average up to his 231 listed weight. #sadbuttrue SUBWAY SERIES CONTINUES: In a battle of the aces, Matt Harvey will square off against Hiroki Kuroda at 7:10 pm in Citi Field tomorrow evening.

After A Tough Start, Jon Niese Has Gotten Back On Track

The month of May for Jon Niese will hopefully become a microcosm for the New York Mets season, it’s not about how you start, it’s how you finish. In what was a horrendous start to the season for Niese, the Mets young southpaw has put together a nice stretch over the past three outings to put his year back on track after seeing his ERA balloon to 5.93. In his first two starts...

Murphy Drives In Go-Ahead Run In Mets 2-1 Victory Over Yankees

After Niese’s second single of the game, Brett Garner made a great leaping catch...

David Wright home run hug with fan becomes heartwarming viral hit

David Wright is one of the few bright spots on a dismal New York Mets team this season and knows it takes more than just any casual fan to come out and see the team at Citi Field.  During Monday's 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees, the Mets' third baseman heard the constant encouragement of one young fan to hit a home run throughout the game and ended up with Wright...

You Mad, Bro? New York Yankees Edition

From SB Nation’s “Pinstriped Bible“: “Bean. Wright.” “oh what the ******* “Well, the closer we are to hitting right.” “Has Jon Niese ever struck out the side in his life before? Holy **** good start, motherlovers.” “Maybe he can hit Wright in the ribs” “NO! BEAN HIM!” “You people lied to me. Apparently this Niese guy is the best pitcher ever....

Murphy’s Law: Duda Wright Thing

TweetThey say the third time’s a charm. Well, last night proved it as the Mets came back again for the third straight game to win in improbable fashion. Down 1-0 in the bottom of the ninth against the best closer baseball has ever seen, Daniel Murphy stepped to the plate and doubled down the leftfield line to start the inning. Immediately afterward, David Wright came up huge once...

Just How Similar is David Wright to Scott Rolen?

When David Wright’s career is over, he’ll undoubtedly be considered the greatest New York Met of all-time. The accomplishments throughout his first nine professional seasons speak for themselves: The franchise’s all-time leader in hits, extra-base hits, runs created, total bases, runs scored, walks, and eventually home runs and games played, Wright could very well find himself...

David Wright homers for fan who earns postgame hug

More good stuff. I caught the last inning of last night’s Mets game and enjoyed the victory (more on the whole Subway Series thing later). For those watching, it was tough to miss David Wright head over to the stands after Bobby Parnell closed it out and share a hug with a fan. As the WB11 crew similarly remarked, it was “awesome” to watch. And you didn’t even know the back...

Ike Davis Shows David Wright Just Who’s Clutch in Mets Unlikely Comeback Victory

TweetIt’s not often that the Mets come back to win a game. It’s not often they win a game period – and that’s mainly because no one on the team knows how to hit in clutch situations. But somehow, the planets aligned properly and the Mets were able to put together an old fashioned rally in the bottom of the eighth inning, no thanks to team Captain David Wright. Again. David...

Game Preview: Yankees vs Mets

It’s rivalry week where most teams are playing their Interleague partner. Of course it feels different this year as there is always an interleague series happening and one rivalry pair (Houston/Texas) is no longer interleague so they aren’t playing right now. Anyway, the Mets won last night and look to continue that into a long streak to reverse the direction the team is moving...

NY Mets Take One from the Yankees 2-1

When interleague play first started years back, I was excited to say the least, finally the natural built in rivalies have a chance to mean soomething. The Dodgers/Angels, Cubs/White Sox, Giants/A’s, Cardinals/Royals and, most importantly, the Yankees/Mets. When the Yankees and Mets play, there is usually a buzz leading up to and during the Subway series. This time not so much...
