Six outs away from their season unofficially expiring, the New York Yankees scored four runs in the eighth inning then held their breath as Mariano Rivera worked in and out of trouble in the ninth to finish a 4-3 season-saving victory over the Blue Jays Wednesday night in front of an announced Rogers Centre crowd of 24,247.

“Every time we win it’s a great feeling,’’ said Rivera, whose club hadn’t shook hands after a victory since last Thursday in Baltimore and broke a four-game slide. “Tonight was a big game for us.’’
