Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Collects 33rd save Saturday
Kimbrel struck out two batters in a clean ninth frame to earn his 33rd save of the season Saturday against the Rays.
Kimbrel needed just 12 pitches to put the Rays down in order en route to converting his first save opportunity in over two weeks. Despite the lack of save chances, he's still strung together seven consecutive scoreless appearances, striking out 16 batters and allowing just five baserunners over seven innings during that stretch. He continues to be one of the most reliable relievers in the game, as evidenced by his 1.43 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and a 119:14 K:BB through 63 innings this season.
