Greg Holland of the Rockies moved to 8-8 in save attempts this season. Holland leads the league in saves. Good for him after his comeback from surgery and for the Rox. Holland was rocked a bit by the Dodgers giving up three hits and a pair of runs before shutting the door on the Colorado 4-3 win that moved them to 6-0 in one-run games.
Fortunately for Holland, Colorado gave him a three-run lead to work his one inning, but frequently closers don’t have that luxury which is why I truly appreciate the “perfect save;” an appearance in which no baserunners are permitted. There have been 41 of them thus far season including three yesterday:
|Santiago Casilla||2017-04-18||OAK||TEX||W 4-2||9-GF, S||1.0||0||13||8||0||0||3|
|Shawn Kelley||2017-04-18||WSN||ATL||W 3-1||9-GF, S||0.2||1||11||10||3||0||2|
|Wade Davis||2017-04-18||CHC||MIL||W 9-7||9-GF, S||1.0||0||9||6||0||0||3|
Here are the perfect save leaders thus far as of April 19, 2017
