David Carpenter earned his first save with a scoreless ninth inning against the Phillies on Monday. He walked one and struck out one.
With Craig Kimbrel nursing a sore shoulder, Carpenter filled in nicely in the ninth inning and may be in line for a few more save opportunities down the road. The Braves have not said how long they plan on resting Kimbrel, but in the mean time Carpenter seems to be the pitcher to add if you are chasing saves. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
