Mariano Rivera, the best closer in baseball history who was coming off a torn ACL, appeared in his first New York Yankees’ game since sustaining the injury on May 3, 2012, and did what he has done better than anyone else in his position.That is, he got the job done.It was not vintage Rivera — he walked a batter and allowed a run — but he shut down the hated Boston Red Sox in the ninth inning to preserve a 4-2 win, the Yankees’ first of the season. It was his first since April 30, 2012.Thursday also marked Rivera’s first outing in what will be the final season of his 19-year career. He received a standing ovation during his jog from the bullpen to the mound, accompanied, as always, by Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”“It was like another one,” Rivera said. “The only difference was this one I waited for almost a year to pitch again, but it feels the same. It was wonderful to be there.”Rivera walked Dustin Pedroia to open the ninth, but retired Mike Napoli on a fly to right before allowing a double down the left-field line to Jonny Gomes that put runners on second and third with one out. Rivera said it took him a batter or two to adjust, as he rarely walks batters, but he felt things were much better after the Napoli at-bat.Will Middlebrooks then grounded out to drive in a run and slice the lead to 4-2, but Rivera then struck out Jackie Bradley Jr. to record his first save of the year. He preserved starter Andy Petitte’s first win of the season, the 69th time Rivera has closed out a Pettitte victory.With his appearance Thursday, Rivera surpassed Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter nd Yogi Berra for the most seasons played with the Yankees, although Jeter will tie him after he returns from the disabled list. The closer acknowledged he was emotional as he ran to the mound.“At the same time, you have to control that. I have to be able to do that because I still have to finish the game,” Rivera said. “It was wonderful. You wait for almost a year to be on the mound and get your job done, especially here at home.”Rivera, 43, last pitched in April 2012, recording a save in a 2-1 win over Baltimore. It was during the Yankees’ next series in Kansas City that he tore his ACL and meniscus while shagging fly balls before a game. Rivera pitched just 8 1/3 innings and notched five saves last season, the shortest of his career.Although there had been speculation that last season would be Rivera’s last, the closer said he would return after the injury, not wanting to end his career like that. He rehabbed to ensure he would be ready for this season, and during spring training, he announced this would be his final year.“There were times, because the therapy and the pain and all that stuff, I thought if it would be worth it to come back,” Rivera said. “At the same time, the love and the passion and the drive that you have for the game motivated me to keep going.”Rivera’s manager and teammates described Thursday as a special night. Manager Joe Girardi said the combination of the Yankees being 0-2 entering the game, facing rival Boston, and Rivera returning to a raucous ovation, made for a memorable moment. Teammates recognized that Thursday began the final stretch of time they’ll see Rivera work his craft.“It’s amazing. I always say I’m going to tell my kids I caught Mariano Rivera,” Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli said. “It’s one of the greatest moments I ever had in my career because he’s going to be the best reliever I ever see in my life.”Added Pettitte: “It’ll be special for me watching him this year and knowing this is it. After this, he won’t be closing any games for us, so I’ll savor it as much as I can.”After the victory, Rivera received the game ball, as he normally does. While he usually gives away the ball, he told ESPNNewYork.com that he plans to keep this one.Rivera is baseball’s all-time saves leader with 609.“I did miss (these moments) a lot,” Rivera said. “At the same time, I have to be patient. I couldn’t push it, I couldn’t rush it, I just had to make things right.”

(AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)ExpandBOSTON — The Dodgers’ offense hadn’t been itself for awhile.Over seven games before Saturday, the Dodgers’ hitters had combined for a .205 average and walked just 17 times while striking out 61. They had failed to drive up the pitch counts of starting pitchers like they had so often during the first half and their collective efforts produced just 22 runs in those seven games.Well, that’s over.Justin Turner led an awakening Saturday night, hitting one of the Dodgers’ three home runs and adding two doubles as the Dodgers chased Chris Sale from the game in the fifth inning and bombed the Boston Red Sox 11-2. That snapped a four-game losing streak wrapped around the All-Star break for the Dodgers, one of only two skids longer than two games they have had this season.“That’s more like it,” bench coach Bob Geren said, walking to the coaches’ room as the media entered the post-game locker room.Indeed, it was a more familiar script. The Dodgers had 20 baserunners (14 hits, four walks and two hit batters), took 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position and had the opposing starting pitcher out of the game before the end of the fifth inning for the first time since July 2.“I thought the at-bats tonight were pretty good,” Turner said. “We made a really, really good pitcher work really hard. We got his pitch count up and were able to break through in that fifth inning. Quality at-bats, taking walks, putting good swings on balls with guys in scoring position — yeah, it was a matter of time.“I think you play a 162-game season, there’s probably going to be a few little lulls in there where you have a hard time getting things going. But that’s kind of uncharacteristic of this offense. One through nine is able to put together quality at-bats over and over again. Hopefully, we had that little lull and now we’re right back where we’re supposed to be.” “There’s constant tinkering going on, trying to get different feels in the box,” Turner said. “I messed with a few things earlier today with our hitting guys in the cage that felt pretty good. A lot of times you do stuff in the cage but it doesn’t always carry over into the game. Tonight, it carried over and felt pretty good.”That was the physical part. There might have been some mental fatigue at work for the entire lineup in the seven-game “lull” as well, Turner admitted.“Yeah, I think it was good for all of us,” he said. “The way this team goes about our business — mentally engaged for nine innings, trying to win every pitch — gets exhausting for all our guys. So that was a nice four-day break. I think a lot of guys needed it. Maybe a little bit of a hangover yesterday but got back to feeling ourselves tonight.”That was evident from the start. Chris Taylor led off the game with a walk. Cody Bellinger beat out an infield single on a dribbler in front of the mound, extending the inning long enough for A.J. Pollock to come through with a two-out RBI single — giving the Dodgers their first lead since the Fourth of July.Turner homered in the third inning and Sale had already thrown 71 pitches by the time he took the mound in the fifth.Kike’ Hernandez led off with a single (the first of four times he reached base in the game) and Sale hit Austin Barnes with a pitch. After Taylor lined out, back-to-back doubles by Turner and David Freese produced three runs. Sale was done not long after.The Dodgers would break the game open late. But the early offense was enough to make things moderately comfortable for starter Ross Stripling who turned in his best outing since rejoining the rotation last month.The Dodgers right-hander held the Red Sox to four hits — one a solo home run by Xander Bogaerts — while striking out seven in five innings.“Definitely had everything firing today,” Stripling said. “I felt like with the mix I was able to keep them off balance a little bit and sneak some heaters past them for some punch outs. Got some freeze takes for some strikeouts. Kind of had everything working tonight.”The Dodgers put it away with four runs in a seventh inning that featured back-to-back home runs by Bellinger and Pollock off reliever Steven Wright. For Bellinger, it was his 31st home run of the season (and came on his 24th birthday). For Pollock, it was his first in the majors since April 17.“Felt like Opening Day,” Pollock joked.Max Muncy stole a run on the shift in the same inning. Muncy went from first to third on a simple ground ball back to the pitcher. The Red Sox were shifted to the right side against Corey Seager and no one was covering third base. Muncy trotted home when first baseman Christian Vazquez tried to hit a moving target as Bogaerts tried to hustle over and cover third. The throw went into left field.Muncy took a more direct route in the ninth, hitting his 23rd homer.“We talked about it — it was a matter of time. We’re too good,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the breakout. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Turner experienced his own little lull. In 15 games before Saturday, he was 10 for 51 (.196).Related Articles Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies
