Which is more impressive? A.J. Burnett's pitching well, or Mariano Rivera's earning his 600th career save? Both happened in the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Mariners in Seattle on Tuesday. Burnett allowed two runs on four hits in six innings, striking out 11 and walking two. That lowered his ERA to 5.20. After scoreless innings from Rafael Soriano and David Robertson, Rivera pitched the ninth to move within one of Trevor Hoffman's all-time saves record. His reaction was muted, as usual. The Yankees exploded against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez on Monday, but they got just enough offense Tuesday against Charlie Furbush. Robinson Cano hit his 26th homer and now has 111 RBIs.

Can the Mets blame every loss the rest of the season on that silly hat controversy? They handed Dillon Gee a two-run lead but lost, 3-2, to the Nationals for the second straight night. Lucas Duda went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in the loss.
