Grant Balfour records fourth save Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays closer Grant Balfour earned his fourth save Saturday after walking one and allowing no hits in a scoreless ninth inning as his team secured a victory over the Reds, 1-0.

Balfour was coming off a shaky performance Friday in which he walked three batters but struck out two to avoid being charged with an earned run. His save Saturday gives him 4 2/3 scoreless innings in five appearances this season, but he's posted a medicore 5:5 K:BB ratio thus far.

Grant Balfour battles wildness in season debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Grant Balfour took the mound in a nonsave situation Wednesday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning but walking a batter, throwing two wild pitches and hitting a batter in his team's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

Balfour didn't hit a batter all season last year but did throw a career-high nine wild pitches while walking 3.9 batters per nine innings while making his first All-Star appearance. He should be able to put Wednesday's wildness behind him moving forward.
