For the third consecutive night, the New York Mets used a late inning rally to earn a win, doing so for the second night against the cross town rival Yankees.

The Mets strung together three straight hits off closer Mariano Rivera, marking the first time in his Hall of Fame career that Rivera entered a game in a save situation and didn’t record an out.

Daniel Murphy opened the inning with a ground rule double, then came around to score on on David Wright’s RBI single. Lucas Duda followed with a soft, blooping single that scored Wright and gave the Mets the first two games of what is essentially a home-and-home, four game Subway Series.

The game’s exciting finish followed what was a classic pitcher’s duel between stud rookie Matt Harvey and veteran Hiroki Kuroda.

Harvey struck out ten over eight innings, against six hits and an earned run – Lyle Overbay’s sixth inning single that scored Brett Gardner.

Kuroda worked seven innings, striking out seven and allowing four hits.

The series moves to Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night. Jeremy Hefner (0-5, 4.76) will look for his first career win, facing the Yankees’ David Phelps (3-2, 3.96).
