It's aseries. This sucks. It all turns on Schilling.
Bugg it is a blown save. It is basically a flaw in the rule. To save the game he would have had to stop the runner on 3rd from scoring while recording 3 outs in the 8th. Then 3 more outs in the 9th. Impossible game to save.

But how much does this affect Rivera's psyche against Boston??!! It's almost like they ARE in his head.
If it were anyone else in the World but Mo, I would be worried. He is a Hall Of Famer. He buried 2 family members this week. The Yankee - Sox thing isn't even the # 1 item on his list of things to worry about right now.
