Matt Bush earned the first save of his career by pitching a clean ninth inning against the Rockies on Wednesday.
He notched one strikeout tonight and now has 34 in 38 2/3 innings for the season. The first overall pick of the 2004 draft has a 2.56 ERA in his rookie campaign. It was a bit odd to see him out there in the ninth inning tonight instead of Sam Dyson or Jeremy Jeffress -- the Rangers' two experienced closers. They both pitched on Tuesday but not on Monday, so they were likely available today. Bush is unlikely to get more save chances moving forward. Aug 11 - 1:08 AM
