Game 1 was a match-up between postseason veterans Al Leiter and Andy Pettitte. Both starters pitched scoreless until the sixth inning when David Justice's 2-run double put the Yankees on top.

However, the Yankees would rally to tie the game on Chuck Knoblauch's sacrifice fly against Mets closer Armando Benitez.

Game 2 had Roger Clemens start for the Yankees. Earlier in the year during regular season Interleague play, Clemens had hit Mets catcher Mike Piazza in the head with a fastball that resulted in Piazza getting a concussion and going on the disabled list. Because pitchers are required to hit in National League parks, Yankees Manager Joe Torre decided to pitch Clemens in Game 2 at Yankee Stadium. This would keep Clemens from forcing himself to pitch in the National League park (and therefore bat) and avoid the Mets getting a chance to retaliate against Clemens. Despite Torre's precautions, Game 2 still saw its share of controversy with Clemens and Piazza. Early in the game during Piazza's first at bat, Clemens pitch had shattered the bat Piazza swung with. The ball went foul, but a sharp edge of the bat came towards Clemens. Clemens rushed off the mound and threw the bat towards the sideline, almost hitting the running Piazza. Piazza saw this as a dangerous stunt and Mets supporters lambasted Clemens for his actions. Clemens, after the game, defended himself saying he did not see Piazza coming and threw the piece angrily because he was pumped up with nervous energy. Piazza did get some revenge by belting a home run, but in the end Clemens had the last laugh by getting credit for the eventual 6-5 win.
