I have been away for a week, doing a quick trip to the US. Whenever I am in the US I always try to catch a baseball game and I was in luck because the Yankees were playing at home against the Red Sox. I had a blast and was very happy I had the opportunity to watch Rivera play for 2 innings, likely the last time I could see him play before he retires ! Yankees won as well !
The next day, however, I was a little confused. Rivera was credited with a Win which I wasn't sure why that was. He came in with the Yankees leading by 1, he gave up a run with the Red Sox tying the game. In the bottom of the 9th the Yankees still won due to a wild pitch which enbaled Ichiro to score. So, in my view, "at best" Rivera defended the lead (i.e. a "save") although he did let the Red Sox tie the game during his two innings.
So please help this simple European guy out and shed some light on the situation !
Thanks and soon it will be back to cards as I had some nice packages at my doormat when I returned home !
