08/10: Rivera tagged with loss vs. Chisox - 2-1

Posted by: David
Mariano Rivera is mortal after all. He entered in the ninth and retired Rowand, Dye and Blum 1-2-3.

The tenth was a different story. After retiring Chris Widger to start the inning, Juan Uribe hit a fly ball up the right field gap which Bernie Williams could have made the play (Chicago White Sox center fielder Aaron Rowand definitely makes the play). Bernie played the ball into a triple and the stage was set for the Chisox.

The next batter was leadoff hitter Scott Podsednik who tried to squeeze and just fouled the ball off. He then grounded to Cano at second who had to go to his right before throwing to home and just missed getting Uribe. Podsednik was caught stealing and then Mo struck out Pablo Ozuna to end the inning.

The Yankees got the tying run on when Tino walked but Cano hit a ball to the warning track in center field to end the game. Rivera is now 5-3 on the season and his ERA is at 1.06.
