Papelbon came into the game in the 8th with a 2-0 lead and finished the game, therefore he got the save. BJ Ryan got the save because the tying run was on deck when he came into the game, which makes it a save situation.
my bad, Ryan didn't get the save. If he came into the game with the tying run on the deck, he should have been credited with the save.
