Norris picked up his ninth save of the season in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Twins, striking out two over 1.2 scoreless innings.

He did allow one inherited runner to score on a wild pitch in the eighth inning, but otherwise Norris was lights out once again. The veteran is a perfect 9-for-9 in save chances this season with a 2.14 ERA and a dominant 29:3 K:BB in 21 innings, and with Greg Holland still struggling to find his form, Norris' hold on the closing job for St. Louis seems to get a little more secure with every appearance.
