Chris Martin, Jacob Webb pick up random saves

June 11, 2019

Texas Rangers – In a game that featured blown saves by the leaders of both Texas and Boston’s committees (Shawn Kelley and Matt Barnes), it was Chris Martin who eventually locked down the save in the 11th inning.

Hierarchy remains: *Kelley | Leclerc | Martin.
* = closer-by-committee

Atlanta Braves – Jacob Webb retired the last hitter in the 8th with the Braves up by three runs. When they tacked on three more in the bottom of the inning, Webb stayed on for the 9th and picked up his second save of the year.

Hierarchy remains: Jackson | Swarzak | Newcomb.


1. Zack Britton/Seth Lugo – The Mets and Yankees play a doubleheader, meaning if a closer gets burned in the first game, he may not be available in the second.

1. Archie Bradley – Greg Holland threw 21 pitches last night; another long outing tonight and he likely won’t be available tomorrow.
