The Yankees came up on the winning end of a pitchers’ duel between Javier Vazquez and Hisanori Takahashi, beating the Mets 2-1 to take Game 1 of the 2010 Subway Series.
Takahashi lost his no-hitter on the first batter when Derek Jeter led off with a single, advancing our NoNoHitter.com count to 7,687 New York Mets games without a no-hitter. It’s the 1,756th time the no-no’s been lost right away (Details on our No-hitters killed by first at bat page.)
Takahashi pitched a solid six innings, giving up on runs on just five hits and a walk while striking out five.
The Yankees’ only runs were on a Kevin Russo doubl in the seventh. The Mets’ only run came on an Ike Davis RBI double in the ninth.
