New York Yankees closer, Mariano Rivera, throws the last pitch of his career against Tampa Bay Rays pinch hitter Yunel Escobar in the top of the ninth inning at Yankee Stadium with one out. Escobar popped out for the second out of the inning and Mariano ended his career at that point. Captain Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte then went out
to the mound and hugged Mariano good-bye. Tampa Bay defeated the Yankees 4-0.
