One of a kind in the ninth inning

Feel free to use the following paragraph for an impossible-to-answer trivia question.

Since the 1998 American League Division Series, Mariano Rivera has recorded the final out in 16 of 18 series clinching wins for the Yankees. His others: Ramiro Mendoza in the 1999 ALCS against Boston, and Gave White in the 2003 ALDS against Minnesota.

Rivera has allowed one earned run in his past 20 postseason appearances. His scoreless ninth inning last night lowered his all-time best postseason ERA to 0.72.

“I’m always extremely nervous when I’m not pitching and watching the games until he comes in,” CC Sabathia said. “He’s done it so much. You just get a real calm feeling.”
