As an owner of Matt Joyce in my AL fantasy league, thank you Messrs. Glover and Kelley for managing to make it interesting but not blowing the win.

Kelley gave up a grand slam and still got the save. Wonder if that's ever happened before?

probably the last time a guy entered the game 5 runs up and gave up a grand slam.

Happened this year. K-Rod did it for the Tigers. It was infuriating then too...

Mike Timlin did it in a game in the 90's.

Interestingly, the largest margins/cushions for a save ever recorded happened for the rangers in 1996 (19 runs) and 2007 (27 runs) and both happened against the orioles. :lol:

Not for the 19 run save. That pitcher only pitched 1.1 innings. That was similar to what happened yesterday with Glover in that the pitcher entered the game in the top of the 8th needing to retire 1 batter with a 3 run lead so that it was already a save situation. He retired the batter and then the rangers scored 16 runs in their half of the inning.
