Mariano Rivera pitched two saves in one day 6 times
- "Although it won't go into the record books as a two-save day - the first game was a continuation of Tuesday's suspended game, so it will go down as having taken place on May 25 - it was the first time since May 3, 2007 that Rivera earned two saves on the same day."
5/27/10, NY Daily News, "Two saves in one day against Minnesota Twins no issue for New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera," M. Feinsand.
- "Rivera saved two games in one day for the fifth time in his major league career, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, the first since Sept. 29, 2004, against Minnesota. Rivera, who has three saves in five chances this season, pitched a 1-2-3 inning in the opener but allowed a pair of singles leading off the ninth in the second game before striking out Gerald Laird and getting Kenny Lofton to ground into a double play."
- (As I recall Gagne had one "2x in 1 day" in 2007 as did Bobby Jenks. There may be others). sm
