Rivera stymies Twins to earn record 602nd career save
NEW YORK (AP) -- Mariano Rivera stood by himself, in the center of the diamond at Yankee Stadium.
For once, the great closer wasn't sure what to do next.
So he smiled, blew a kiss to the crowd, and then doffed his cap as cheers washed over him following the record 602nd save of his career.
"Oh, my God, for the first time in my career, I'm on the mound alone," Rivera said. "It was priceless. I didn't know it could be like that."
