Quintessential Mo-Ments No. 31: Six outs for a split
Following seven strong from A.J. Burnett, in came Rivera with a 3-1 lead and perhaps his most rest of that postseason. He got himself into some quick trouble, allowing a walk and a single with one out in the eighth, but Rivera got Chase Utley to rap into a double play to end that frame and then worked around a two-out double in the ninth to nail down the save.
Just another workmanlike effort from Rivera, who at exactly 39 years and 11 months old erased the only series lead Philadelphia would enjoy that fall.
