Rivera in Tampa Bay July 18

7/19/11, "You couldn’t have blamed the Rays for thinking they were doomed in the ninth inning Monday night against the Yankees. An early, three-run lead had evaporated and, three outs away from a 5-4 loss, Mariano Rivera was about to remind the fans at Tropicana Field why resistance was futile.

7/19/11, "Yanks will pay handsomely for Sabathia," Bob Klapisch, Fox Sports
