Workman allowed one hit and one walk and struck out during a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Saturday against Atlanta.

It was hardly a proficient performance as he delivered only nine of his 19 pitches for strikes, but the right-hander was able to keep the Braves off the board all the same. Workman has now made five appearances since being acquired by the Phillies on Aug. 21, and he's converted three of four save chances with two runs allowed on 10 hits and four walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings. Overall this season he has a 4.09 ERA and 2.18 WHIP over 12 outings between Boston and Philadelphia.
