NEW YORK (AP) - David Wright and Lucas Duda hit RBI singles off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning, and the New York Mets rallied past the Yankees 2-1 on Tuesday night to beat baseball's career saves leader only hours after honoring him at Citi Field.

Matt Harvey and Hiroki Kuroda locked up in an entertaining pitchers' duel that went to the ninth with the Yankees leading 1-0 on Lyle Overbay's run-scoring single. But all three batters to face Rivera got hits, handing him the first blown save of his farewell season in 19 chances.

Daniel Murphy opened the ninth with a double just inside the left field line, and Wright tied it with a single to center. Wright reached second on a throwing error by Brett Gardner and got a great jump on the basepaths when Duda fisted a single to right-center.

    Just one season of hits in high school football may alter brain

    Even among high school football players who've never had a concussion, a small preliminary study suggests that changes can still occur to their brains within the course of a single season.
