Best in the Pen 10/12-18: Mariano Rivera

The first two games of the ALCS made up this week’s selection for Best in the Pen. And once again, it is Mariano Rivera for pitching 3-1/3 innings of shutout baseball. He has allowed a hit, a walk and struck out three.

Joe Girardi is not afraid to throw Rivera more than one inning in the postseason, and sometimes even more than two, like you saw in game 2. Don’t be surprised if this name is seen here again later this month.
