On April 4, 2013 — The Yankees record their first win of the season by turning to their storied past. Andy Pettitte picks up the win and Mariano Rivera gets the save in his first appearance following a serious knee injury that almost ended his career as they defeat the Red Sox, 4 – 2. It is Rivera’s record 19th season as a Yankee, although Derek Jeter will join him when he is activated form the disabled list later this season.
