Mystery is creeping into the Sunday night showdown between Mariano Rivera and David Ortiz.

Rivera was hit on the right hand by a wild throw from Boston’s bullpen before he entered the game. He lost some feeling in his fingers, but still took the ball and sealed the win.

It may never reach the legendary and mysterious status of Satchel Paige verses Josh Gibson, but it’s a start.

It’s a dangerous place. We’ve had our rightfielder sucker punched by some yuppie while he was trying to dig a ball out of the corner, our second baseman had his hat taken by some nut and now Rivera gets hit by a pitch in the bullpen.
