Barnes pitched a perfect inning against Toronto on Wednesday, striking out one batter to earn the save.

The right-hander entered in the ninth inning with the task of preserving a three-run lead and did so with ease, needing only 11 pitches to set down the side in order. The save was his first since July 4 in only his second appearance since that date. Barnes has allowed only one earned run over his past 10 appearances and has a solid 2.54 ERA on the campaign.
