There were a lot of firsts in this final game of the 2014 Subway Series: It was the first time two pitchers were making their Major League debut. It was also the first time Chase Whitley had a hit in the Major Leagues. But the best “first” of them all was Whitley and the Yankees bullpen combining for the shutout as the Yankees beat the Mets 1-0 at Citi Field in Queens, New York. The 1-0 shutout was the first time the Mets lost 1-0 in Subway Series history.
Chase Whitley made his debut for the Yankees, going 4.2 innings while giving up two hits and striking out four. Dellin Betances had the most impressive outing of the night, going 2.1 innings and striking out six batters. Adam Warren followed afterwards with 0.2 innings while striking out two and David Robertson got the four out save, striking out two and notching his seventh save of the season in seven attempts.
The difference in this game was the top of the seventh inning when Mark Teixeira walked, Brian McCann grounded into a force out and Alfonso Soriano doubled to center field, scoring McCann and going to third on the throw.
