Craig Kimbrel moved into a tie for the National League lead in saves with 39 after pitching a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's win over the Mets.
Kimbrel was in danger immediately, allowing the first two batters he faced to reach base on a single and a walk. But a sac bunt, a fielder's choice ground out, and a weak fly out later, Kimbrel was able to wrap up the game for his 39th save. He's tied with Trevor Rosenthal and Francisco Rodriguez for the league lead. The flame-thrower is 39-for-43 in save chances with a 1.73 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, and an 84/24 K/BB ratio. Aug 27 - 10:15 PM
