Mariano Rivera's History In The Subway Series

This will be the first time that the New York Yankees will take on the New York Mets in the Subway Series without the great Mariano Rivera. Rivera did quite well against the Mets in his career and I wanted to go over a few of the high points to honor the great Rivera. 

In the 2000 World Series Mariano Rivera was on the mound throwing his cutter when Mets catcher Mike Piazza hit a long fly ball to Bernie Williams for the final out of the World Series. This would be Mariano's second save of that World Series and his fourth ring in five seasons.

Mariano Rivera notched his 500th career save in 2009 at Citi Field against the New York Mets. Mariano Rivera's only career RBI, to date anyway, came against Francisco Rodriguez of the Mets in the same game. Granted it was a bases loaded walk but I think Mariano will take it anyway that he can get it.
