Player Notes
Grant Balfour got the call to close out the game Tuesday and responded with a scoreless inning to earn the save against the Yankees.

Advice: Balfour, who hadn't had a save chance since June 11, walked two batters in the inning before slamming the door. He's allowed just one run over his last 6 2/3 innings while striking out nine as he attempts to distance himself from his early struggles. It's worth noting that Jake McGee worked the eighth inning and Joel Peralta, who had been used in each of the last two games, got the night off. For now, the situation is still fluid enough that it's tough to trust any to get consistent save chances.
