Prior to 1997, the term “Subway Series” was reserved for playoff or World Series match-ups between New York’s American and National league teams, including matchups between the Yankees and Mets as well as between the Yankees and then-New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers.
Since 1997, the term has applied to interleague games between the Yankees and Mets, as well as the 2000 World Series, which the Yankees won. The Mets won the last meeting, 8-5, at Yankee Stadium on August 13, 2018. The teams played six times in 2018, and split the series, 3-3.
