their World Series deficit to 2- 1
A sellout crowd of55299 went crazy as Armando
Benitez held on in the ninth inning this time, helping
the Mets end the Yankees' record 14-game winning
streak in the World Series.
"Our fans have been waiting 14 years for this,"

Hernandez began the night with an 8-0 record and
a 1.90 ERA in postseason play, and set a Yankees'
World Series record by striking out 12, breaking the
mark of II set by Bob Turley in 1956.
"All we ever heard was how he won all those
games and had never lost," Aobavani said. "There's
the first time for evei'vone.

Now, after two one-run defeats at Yankee
Stadium, the Mets get a chance to draw even. Bobby
J. Jones will pitch Game 4 tonight against Denny
Neagle and Bill Clinton is expected to become the
first president in office to attend a Series game since
Ronald Reagan in 1983.
Hernandez, who struck out the first three hitters in
the opening inning and took advantage of a few extra
inches on the outside corner of Jeff Kellogg's strike
zone, fanned Robin Ventura to start the eighth.
But after Todd Zeile singled, Agbavani doubled
into the left-center field gap. Agbayani has hit in all
12 of the Mets' postseason games this year, includ-
ing a 13th-inning home run that beat San Francisco
in the division series.
The sixth inning saw the Mets tie it at 2, and
showcased all this Subway Series has to offer - big
stars delivering in big spots, dueling fans and drama
with every pitch.
With reliever Dennis Cook warming up in a hurry.
Mets manager Bobby Valentine gambled. He put up
Darryl Hamilton for starter Rick Reed, yet the pinch
hitter was no match for Hernandez and grounded out.
The Yankees tied it at I in the third on David
Justice's RBI double. It came with two outs, as have
several of the Yankees' big hits in this Series.
Reed was not sharp in the next half-inning line
Martinez led off with a single and one out later, Paul
O'Neill hit his first triple since July 23, 1999. Scott
Brosius was hit by a pitch, but Reed limited the dam-
age and the fourth inning ended with the Yankees
O'Neill doubled and tripled, giving him five
straight hits - two short of the Series record set by
Cincinnati's Billy Hatcher in 1990 - before ground-
ing out his next time up.
