David Wright Celebrates With Fan After Mets Beat Yankees (VIDEO)

David Wright stole the show on Monday night when the New York Mets opened the Subway Series against their crosstown rivals in Queens, N.Y.

Leading off in the bottom of the seventh, Wright clobbered a game-tying home run over the left field wall off of Yankees starter Phil Hughes, who was searching for his third consecutive winning start. According to the Star-Ledger, a young fan named Max Rubin told the Mets All-Star to hit a homer before the at-bat.

Following the Mets 2-1 win, Wright greeted Rubin by the dugout with a giant hug.

A similar feel-good moment came earlier in April when Reds batboy Teddy Kremer told Todd Frazier to hit a home run against the Marlins. Frazier delivered.
