Jonny Venters earns one-out save Saturday

by Mike Maher | Sun, May 12th 9:22am EDT

Braves reliever Jonny Venters retired the only batter he faced to earn the save in Saturday's win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact:

Luke Jackson had pitched in two straight games and was unavailable on Saturday, so the Braves went with a committee approach to the ninth inning. With lefty David Peralta coming up to bat with two outs, Venters was able to come in and earn the save. The closer's job seems to be Jackson's to lose at the moment, but the Atlanta bullpen is in flux and high-leverage innings are available for the taking if Venters can continue to pitch well.
