- The best closer on the planet
- threw a called third strike by Jay Payton to end the inning, and
- then finished off the Orioles in the ninth.
Brian Roberts walked with two outs, stole second and went to third on
Then Rivera threw a third strike to Nick Markakis, who went down looking.
- "I’m sure the left-handed hitters are thinking cutters in," said Rodriguez, who’s hit against Rivera for much of his career. "We went with three straight pitches outside, then went in.
- The good thing for me is I don’t have to face him anymore.""
