Minus Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning, the New York Yankees used a pair of relievers to close out the Los Angeles Angels 2-1 Monday night and preserve the win for Hiroki Kuroda.

Kuroda (11-7) tossed three-hit ball for eight shutout innings.

Rivera was given the night off after blowing three straight save chances, including one Sunday. Fans chanted “We want Mo!” after Boone Logan relieved to begin the ninth and allowed a leadoff single in the ninth to J.B. Shuck that hit first base.

Rivera was not even seen in the Yankees bullpen in the ninth. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after the game that he wanted to give Rivera a night off after the career saves leader pitched three times in the past five days.
