Mets v Yankees X Valentine

The 2016 World Series kicks off tomorrow night as the Cubs play the Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name the starting lineups in Game 1 of the 2000 Subway Series between the Mets and the Yankees.

Starting lineups in Game 1 of the 2000 Subway Series.

The Mets dropped Game 1 in heartbreaking fashion, blowing a one-run lead in the ninth and then losing on a two-out walk-off single in the 12th. Although the Mets lost the series in just five games, all five games were remarkably close.

The Yankees overcame a five-run ninth-inning rally by the Mets to win Game 2 in another one-run affair. The Mets then won their first and only game of the series when it moved back to Shea, doing so by a 4-2 score. The Yankees, however, closed out the series with one- and two-run victories in Games 4 and 5, respectively.

You’ll have three minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
