      Rays RP Brad Boxberger records 35th save of the season

      Rays relief pitcher Brad Boxberger allowed a run on one hit, he did not walk a batter and struck out one in an inning of work to log his 35th save against the Orioles on Friday night. He has struggled mightily of late and while he picked up a save in this one, he allowed a home run to Steve Pearce, and saw his ERA drift even higher to 3.90 on the year. The Rays don't have a lot of viable options other than perhaps Jake McGee when he returns, so Boxberger could finish out the year as their closer despite his poor performance.
