SEATTLE -- The Mariners honored all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera on the field before Thursday's 6-1 Yankees win at Safeco Field to commemorate the start of Rivera's final regular-season series in Seattle.
It was one of the few times Martinez has given anything away to Rivera. Seattle's premier designated hitter from 1987-2004 was 10-for-16 with two home runs and six RBIs in 20 career plate appearances against the right-hander.
The Mariners also played a one-minute tribute to Rivera on their giant video board.
