Mariano Rivera became the second pitcher in baseball history to reach 600 career saves, shutting down the Mariners in a scoreless ninth inning to preserve a 3-2 win for the Yankees. Rivera is now one away from tying Trevor Hoffman’s all-time record of 601 saves. Rivera’s ninth preserved a win for A.J. Burnett who set a season-high with 11 strikeouts, including seven of the last 11 batters he faced. Robinson Cano homered in the second inning, then drove in the winning run with a ground ball in the sixth. Rafael Soriano and Dave Robertson formed a scoreless bridge to Rivera, who has 41 saves this season.
