Well that didn't take long! In the first save chance of the season, Red Sox manager Terry Francona turned to Jonathan Papelbon, and Papelbon closed out the game with a scoreless ninth. He protected the one-run by striking out two and inducing a lazy pop-out. It was Papelbon's first professional save, although he was a closer in college.
Papelbon's save makes him the second former Spinner to record a Major League save. Who was the first? Leave your guess in the comments, and I'll give the answer next time.
