Pena's Last Hurrah: Mets 3, Yankees 2

The New York Mets avoided being swept in the final game of this years Subway Series, defeating the Yankees 3-2.

The Yankees led 2-1 going into the bottom of the 9th, a lead that most would consider insurmountable with Mariano Rivera on the mound. The Mets managed to put together a run, however, and forced the game into extra innings.

After the Yankees stranded a runner on third in the top of the 10th, the Mets ended it in the bottom half.

Luis Ayala walked the lead-off hitter, then hit Justin Turner after Angel Pagan sacrificed. Boone Logan relieved Ayala, and got Carlos Beltran to strike out.

Next up came Daniel Murphy, who hit a slow ground ball to shortstop Ramiro Pena. Pena bobbled the ball, and did not get the out. Pena, a defensive specialist, is likely to be sent down when Derek Jeter returns. Thank goodness.

Jason Bay capitalized on the error, as he singled in the winning run.

Tough loss for the Yankees, but they still took the Subway Series.
