James Russell picked up his first save of the year with a perfect 13th against the Marlins on Monday.
The Cubs weren't going to use Neil Ramirez tonight after his saves Saturday and Sunday and they had already run through Hector Rondon and Pedro Strop, so Russell got his first save since 2012. He's been very effective of late, turning in 13 straight appearances without allowing an earned run. He's not really a candidate for additional saves, though. Jun 17 - 12:58 AM
