In the eighth inning ( Yankees up 8 to 1), Mussina gave up a lead-off single, and was pulled from the game. Aaron Small came in in relief, but gave up three runs on 3 hits. He was pulled from the game for Kyle Farnsworth who gave up a couple more hits. Rivera came in and gave up three hits ( the two runners who did score were charged to Farnsworth), but finally shut the door and nailed down his sixth save of the season.
