John Axford earns fifth save on chilly night
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians closer John Axford secured his fifth save of the season Wednesday, giving up just one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 3-2 win over the Tigers.

Axford did a good job slamming the door on a night when the recorded game temperature was 41 degrees Fahrenheit, as neither side was likely interested in a drawn-out, extra-innings game. The Indians closer bounced back nicely after blowing a save opportunity in his last outing. He owns a 4.05 ERA and 8:6 K:BB ratio in 6 2/3 innings.

John Axford strands tying run for fourth save
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians closer John Axford was able to work out of trouble in the ninth inning to secure his fourth save during a 2-0 win in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against San Diego.

Axford allowed a leadoff single to Yonder Alonso before striking out Yasmani Grandal. Jedd Gyorko drew a walk, and both runners moved into scoring position after a wild pitch. However, Axford escaped the jam by getting Will Venable to strike out and Xavier Nady to fly out to end the threat.

Axford also recorded a one-out save during Tuesday's 8-6 win against the Padres.
