Mariano Rivera has set a new milestone and Major League Baseball record today vs. the Minnesota Twins Rivera has set the record for saves at 602 in his illustrious career as a New York Yankee. An amazing feat surpassing the great Padre relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman. Rivera came into this afternoons matinee game setting the twins aside in the ninth. The first batter Trevor Plouffe grounded out, then Rivera had got Michael Cuddyer to fly out to right fielder Chris Dickerson, the last batter that would face Rivera would be Chris Parmalee who would promptly strike out. Rivera was very humble about his achievement as he always has been. Thanking the whole Yankees organization and his family, as well as us the fans for being there for the amazing ride, and what a wonderful ride it has been The Minnesota Twins organization should be proud as well and how classy they are in staying and cheering for Rivera simply a class act on their part, that is why this is such a great game.Thank You #42 the BEST closer in the game bar none!!!!
