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.
