Mariano Rivera earned his 600th save, moving within one of Trevor Hoffman's major league record, by closing out the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night, according to an ESPN.com report.

Rivera entered with a one-run lead in the ninth inning and allowed just a one-out single to Ichiro Suzuki. He was retired when catcher Russell Martin caught Suzuki trying to steal second for the final out.
