Mariano Rivera worked another scoreless ninth and recorded his tenth save of the season and preserved a 4-2 Yankees win for Wang. He faced the heart of the order and got Rondell White on a grounder to Tino with himself covering for the first out. Dmitri Young batted second in the inning. He is a switch hitter, but elected to bat right handed against Mo to avoid the cutter on his hands. Mo got him on a soft bouncer back to the mound. Craig Monroe battled Mo and fouled off several pitches before Mo walked him. Ramon Martinez followed and Mo got him on a fly ball to Sheffield in right center to end the game. Rivera is only one save shy of sixth place on the all time career saves list currently being held by Randy Myers. His season E.R.A. is now at 1.62.

It took Mo a little bit longer to get the save tonight but it ended well again for the Yankees as they won their ninth straight game and are now above .500. Rivera entered the ninth and walked the leadoff hitter Raul Ibanez. Bret Boone hit a ball hard toward the middle but Jeter went down on one knee and turned it into a double play. Jeremy Reed hit a broken bat pop fly single to center before Greg Dobbs battled but struck out to end the game. The Yankees were losing most of the game until the seventh when Bernie Williams hit a grand slam home run to put them ahead 5-2. Each team added a run and the Yankees won the contest 6-3. Rivera now has a season ERA of 1.98.

Rivera entered the game in the ninth with the score tied at 3 and worked a perfect inning. In the 10th however, things began to unravel. He walked Scutaro to lead off the inning. He struck out Mark Kotsay for the first out but then had Jason Kendall 0-2 and hit him with a pitch. Eric Chavez followed with an infield single to load the bases. Scott Hatteberg then bounced to first and Tino missed the bag and then threw wildly to home allowing two runners to score. Erubiel Durazo reached on an error by A-Rod and then Mo walked the next bater to force in a run. He struck out Eric Byrnes to end the game but the Yankees lost 6-3. He is now 2-2 on the year with an ERA of 2.79.

With the Yankees leading 6-2 entering the ninth Joe Torre put Mo on the hill for some much needed work. In only his eighth appearance of the season, Rivera struck out Josh Phelps, Jorge Cantu and Nick Green consecutively to end the game for the Yankees. He lowered his ERA to 2.35 on the season and has looked very impressive in his last two or three appearances.
