Tigers' Shane Greene: Gets 10th save of season

Greene got the save against the Mariners on Thursday, striking out one without allowing a baserunner over a clean ninth inning to lock down the Tigers' 3-2 victory.

It was the 10th save of the year and the sixth straight successful conversion for the right-hander, who has yielded just one earned run since he was blown up for three runs in just one-third of an inning against the Rays back on April 30. He hasn't been completely lights-out this season as demonstrated by his 3.54 ERA and 1.33 WHIP that don't have the look of some of the league's dominant closers, but those are a bit skewed thanks to that one bad outing and Greene looks like he's put it together of late, as he's got a 1.08 ERA since the start of May.
