Mariano Rivera Blows First Save

First, the New York Mets saluted Mariano Rivera. Then they beat him in the bottom of the ninth inning.

David Wright and Lucas Duda hit RBI singles off Rivera, and the Mets rallied past the New York Yankees 2-1 on Tuesday night to foil baseball’s career saves leader only hours after honoring him at Citi Field.

“I think we surprised ourselves,” Wright said, “because when you get Mo coming in, it’s usually game over.”
