Mo hugs Mets all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera after throwing out ceremonial first pitch

Mo hugs Mets all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera after throwing out ceremonial first pitch at Citi-Field on Tuesday night.

“Everything was great, until the ninth. . . . It was a great game until I got into the game,” said Rivera, who had never in his career failed to record an out in a save situation. “There are no excuses. They just beat me. Too bad that (Hiroki) Kuroda pitched a tremendous game. For me to do that is unacceptable.” – nydailynews

T

he ‘Amazin Mets honored Yankees’ retiring prodigy Mariano Rivera K Mo before the game (with him throwing the first pitch and getting gifts) and then dialed him up for two runs in the bottom of the ninth to get the W! Out of nowhere, David Wright chipped an RBI single followed by Lucas Duda (off Mo), as the Mets proved once again that they are still ‘Amazin (despite a 20-29 record)! Mets manager Terry Collins got the boot and started kicking bases arguing a call during the close game! The Mets still had many empty seats, and seemed to overcharge Yankee fans?!

But maybe it is a turning point for the Mets, who haven’t shown much of anything so far this season! It is the first time in Mo 19-year career that he failed to get an out, and also the first time this season he blew a save opportunity after converting 18 straight chances! Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitched eight innings giving up one run (an RBI single to Lyle Overbay) while striking out 10, and still held onto his perfect (5-0) record! Yankees’ starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda (initially won the pitchers duel) pitched great, surrendering four hits no runs while striking out seven in seven innings pitched! Matt Harvey is pleading his case to start the All-Star game, which will be played at Citi-Field in July!
