Player Notes
Jonathan Papelbon allowed the Rockies to score once in the ninth inning but still converted the save as the Phillies eked out a 4-3 win on Monday.

Advice: To be fair to Papelbon, the run wasn't really his fault as Jeff Francoeur poorly played a fly ball to right field, resulting in a triple. The run was promptly brought in when Charlie Blackmon singled to shallow right-center. It's only the third time in 17 appearances Papelbon has allowed a run. Papelbon got all three outs on strikeouts. He's 10-for-10 in save opportunities with a 1.59 ERA and a 21/4 K/BB ratio in 17 innings.

Jonathan Papelbon secured his eighth game of the season, coming in with one out in the ninth inning to stomp out a potential Pirates rally.

Advice: It wasn't a perfect ninth for Papelbon, who came in with one out and Starling Marte on second. Marte would advance to third on defensive indifference and score on a ground out to move the Pirates to within 4-2. Papelbon then proceeded to plunk Jung Ho Kang to bring the tying run to the plate, but a pinch-hitting Andrew McCutchen fouled out and Papelbon came away with his eighth save of the season. He improved to 8-for-8 in save chances and holds a 1.20 ERA and 16/4 K/BB ratio over 15 innings.

Jonathan Papelbon slammed the door on the Pirates in the ninth inning in Wednesday's win.

Advice: In doing so, Papelbon became the Phillies' all-time saves leader with 113, breaking a tie with Jose Mesa. The right-hander had to get out of some hot water first, though. He issued a lead-off walk to Francisco Cervelli, who was pinch-ran for by Steve Lombardozzi. Papelbon struck out Neil Walker for the first out. While attempting to keep Lombardozzi close, the closer made an errant throw past first baseman Darin Ruf, allowing the tying run to reach third base with one out. Thankfully, though, Jordy Mercer hit a fly ball to right fielder Jeff Francoeur in foul territory, who fired a perfect strike home to nail a tagged-up Lombardozzi. Not a bad way to make some history -- Papelbon is only the second closer to lead two different clubs in saves (Red Sox, Phillies) along with Robb Nen (Marlins, Giants). He's 7-for-7 in save chances this year with a 1.26 ERA and a 16/4 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings.
