This is the rule regarding saves:
The official scorer shall credit a pitcher with a save when such pitcher meets all four of the following conditions:
(a) He is the finishing pitcher in a game won by his team;
(b) He is not the winning pitcher;
(c) He is credited with at least a third of an inning pitched; and
(d) He satisfies one of the following conditions:
(1) He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning;
(2) He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, or at bat or on deck; or
(3) He pitches for at least three innings.
So Acosta still has not officially saved a game since April 24. At least he picked up a cheap win today. This is one of the more aggravating closer situations you'll invest in, ever. The job is a curse.
It appears that whoever has John Smoltz parked on the DL in your league may eventually gain a closer with SP eligibility. "I can visualize him locking up a lot of games for us," Bobby Cox has said, even though Smoltz is dealing with shoulder inflammation.
The whole Atlanta bullpen is a theater of pain.
In other stat correction news, Max Scherzer picked up three bonus earned runs because the missile that collided with Stephen Drew was ruled a hit. It was originally scored an error.
You can always find these little annoyances by going to the "Players" tab on your league page, then to "Stat Corrections."
