"Suspecting Pujols was looking for his signature cut fastball, Rivera instead threw him all two-seam fastballs, or sinkers, which dive in the opposite direction as his cutter. Pujols took the first pitch for a called strike, fouled off the second, and then went down as he tried to check his swing on a pitch up and in. 

After Rivera had saved the inning, the game and the trip, he was typically modest. 

“That’s why baseball is so special and unique,” he said. “Just when you think you’ve figured it out, something always happens.”"
