NEW YORK -- David Wright heard Max Rubin all game long.

"You're going to hit a home run," Rubin, sitting near the Mets' dugout, yelled toward Wright throughout Monday night's game against the Yankees at Citi Field.

Leading off the seventh inning, Wright did exactly that.

The Mets' third baseman hit a home run into the left-field stands off Phil Hughes to tie the game at 1. In the bottom of the eighth, Jordany Valdespin scored the go-ahead run on a single by Daniel Murphy, and the Mets ended up taking the first game of the 2013 Subway Series, 2-1.

But it was Wright's clutch homer that put the Mets in position to do so.

After the game, Wright walked over to greet an excited Rubin. The two hugged and celebrated the win.

"It was cool," Wright said. "It makes you feel special to see his face light up like that."
