Jason Giambi saved the Yankees from an embarrassing Subway Series sweep. Giambi hit a walkoff two-run single in the ninth against Mets closer Braden Looper, who had converted 14 straight save chances. Tino Martinez, the last non-pitcher on the bench, pinch-hit and walked to lead off the ninth. Alex Rodriguez doubled just inside the third-base line for his fourth hit, and Hideki Matsui was intentionally walked to load the bases. Giambi's single to the gap in right-center gave the Yankees a split of their six games against the Mets in 2005.
