Andy Pettitte has gotten the win and Mariano Rivera the save 55 times. That ties the record set by Oakland’s Bob Welch and Dennis Eckersley.

“That’s great,” Rivera said. “Andy is a good man, a good teammate and a great pitcher. I’m proud that we did that.”

UPDATE, 4:50 p.m.: Upon further review by the Elias Sports Bureau, it seems that Welch and Eckserley combined for 57 victories and saves. So Pettitte and Rivera remain in second place.

But the Yankees still won the game 2-1.
