Smith allowed an unearned run on two walks while striking out one to earn the save Tuesday against Philadelphia.

Smith managed his 36th save of the season, though he did so in adventurous fashion. Much of the drama was not his fault, as Eddie Rosario committed an error that allowed the tying baserunners to reach second and third base with one out. After intentionally walking Andrew McCutchen, Smith retired the next two batters he faced to work out of trouble. Smith has pitched well in September -- aside from allowing seven walks -- by allowing only two earned runs and striking out 15 across 11 innings. For the season, Smith has maintained a 3.55 ERA with an 84:28 K:BB across 66 frames.
