How about that Mariano Rivera?

Mariano Rivera is special, but I don’t need to tell you that.

The dude hasn’t pitched in eight days, and he comes in and strikes out all four batters he faces tonight.  And he even batted in the ninth inning, hitting a hard fly ball to center.

The Yankees needed a win in the worst way, and after being shut out for 14 innings, the Yankees exploded for eight runs in the final four innings of tonight’s game.  Joba Chamberlain looked solid throwing to Francisco Cervelli and the offense put together some timely hits toward the end.

They’ll look to take the rubber game tomorrow evening.

Mo's last save was against the Nats in what seems like a season ago. But more importantly, he's up to 498 saves. He looked good. Or rather, sounded good based on Sterling's play-by-play.
