The only thing that comes close to the joy of a Red Sox win is a Yankee loss. And thanks to Mariano Rivera and his epic meltdown, we got one. The Yankees had a 6-5 lead going to the bottom of the ninth. Enter the Sandman. In his 675 save opportunities, Rivera has converted 603 of them. Most teams get to this point in the game and just wait for the fabled cutter to f%&k them over. Not the 2012 Rays. Check out the play-by-play:

Mariano Rivera pitching:
Desmond Jennings : Strike looking, Strike swinging, Ball, Jennings singled to deep center.
Ben Zobrist : Zobrist tripled to deep center, Jennings scored.
Evan Longoria : Intentional ball, Intentional ball, Intentional ball, Longoria intentionally walked.
Luke Scott : Intentional ball, Intentional ball, Ball (pitchout), Scott intentionally walked, Longoria to second
Eduardo Nunez in right.
Sean Rodriguez : Ball, Foul, Ball, Ball, Foul, Rodriguez struck out swinging.
Carlos Pena : Strike looking, Ball, Strike swinging, Pena singled to deep left, Zobrist scored, Longoria to third, Scott to second

Notice how every ball that was hit has that word “deep” in it? Not a good sign for Rivera and the Yankees. We’ve been saying for how many years he is going to get old? Looks like it might finally happen.
