Rivera gets No. 500
Photos
Yankees 4, Mets 2
Mariano Rivera's save on Sunday was the 110th in which he recorded four outs.  (Kathy Willens/AP)
It's often said that three is the magic number, and though a trio of runs in the first essentially won the game, it's No. 500 that will be remembered as Mariano Rivera took his place in history by closing out the Subway Series. The milestone save ensured a sweep behind an effective Chien-Ming Wang start.
