John Axford: Picks Up 16th Save

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 2:01 PM


Axford gave up a walk and a hit before finishing off the Marlins for his 16th save of the season Sunday.


His curveball was good enough to get the game-ending ground out, but Axford's stuff wasn't his best Sunday as he failed to record a strikeout. The Brewers don't have anyone groomed to take his place if he runs into a prolonged rough patch, so Axford seems to have earned plenty of leash in the closer's role thanks an impressive 36 strikeouts over 27.1 innings.
