Chris Martin collects his first save of the season Sunday

Chris Martin pitched the ninth inning of the game against the Nationals Sunday, allowing two hits and one run (earned) while striking out one batter. He sealed the Braves win and earned his first save of the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Martin was filling in for Will Smith, who had a blown save and loss the night before. The team has always had other options for the closer role, but Smith remains the closer, in fact, it would take a few meltdowns for the team to remove him.
