Mariano Rivera's final game in Yankee Stadium was tonight's contest against the Rays. The Yankees were unable to muster a single run, but Joe Giardi made sure Mo got into the game. The call was made with runners on first and second and one out in the eighth inning, down 4-0. Watch him enter one last time:



Rivera would retire all 4 batters he faced: Delmon Young and Sam Fuld to get out of the jam and José Lobatón and Yunel Escobar for the first two outs in the ninth. Girardi opted to remove him with 2 outs in order to let him walk off to an ovation one last time. But instead of Giardi coming out to get him, the manager sent out Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera for an emotional moment. Watch it here:

Now that the Yankees are eliminated and Mariano Rivera's career has an official end date, Peter Botte and Anthony McCarron of the Daily News discuss the possibility of Mariano Rivera playing center field during the Yankees final series in Houston against the Astros. Rivera has always shagged fly balls and the idea of him playing center has always been teased, but now that the team has nothing to lose and no worry of injuring him for next year, he may just get a shot.

Joe Giardi indicated that the team has a "responsibility to baseball" for the Rays series, because it impacts the postseason. But the final series in Houston has no impact because both teams are eliminated. When Rivera was asked about the idea, he laughed and said, "We'll see." Stay tuned. This might be the only good thing to come out of us missing the playoffs.

Mariano Rivera has kicked off his final regular season game at Yankee Stadium. Following today's ceremony, Joe Girardi made sure that Rivera saw action in Sunday's game.

River entered in the 8th inning with a runner on second and one out. He struck out Ehire Adrianza and elicited a fly out from Ángel Pagán to end the inning, keeping the Yankees in the game, trailing at 2-1. The team threatened in the bottom of the 8th but runners were thrown out at the plate not once, but twice.

In the top of the 9th, Juan Pérez singled and Brandon Belt reached on a throwing error by Robinson Cano, to put runners on first and second with no outs. Rivera broke Buster Posey's bat for a soft liner which Cano caught for the first out. Hunter Pence grounded into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning.

The Yankees went out weakly to end the game. Rivera now has a 2.15 ERA for the season.

Check out some video below of Rivera entering the game and reflecting afterwards.
