Mariano Rivera was simply awesome on Sunday afternoon in the Bronx. He followed Chien-Ming Wang and Joba Chamberlain to preserve a 2-0 Yankee victory. He faced the heart of the Rays order and was simply put, overpowering. He got Carlos Pena on a broken bat pop up to A-Rod for the first out. He then struck out B.J. Upton and Cliff Floyd swinging to end the game.
For Rivera, he is 0-0 on the season with 3 saves in as many save opportunities. He now has 446 career saves and his season ERA is at 0.00.
