Episode Summary

September 13, 2008: Los Angeles Angels 5 at Seattle Mariners 2, F -- Having clinched the A.L. West a few days before, all eyes were focused on Francisco Rodriguez breaking the single-season saves record, set by another Angel, Bobby Thigpen, 18 years before. The opportunity for save No. 58 would not have been possible, however, without a monster game at the plate from fellow Venezuelan Juan Rivera, and a solid pitching performance by Jon Garland. Rivera, starting in place of the injured Vladimir Guerrero in right field, exploded for a 4-for-4 night with a homer, three RBIs and two runs scored. He also tied a club record with his three doubles, a feat that has been accomplished by an Angel four times this season. So when K-Rod struck out Raul Ibanez for the last out for his third save in four days, he lifted his arms and head skyward, then sank to his knees, his name etched into the record books.moreless
