Grant Balfour recorded save five and six in Thursday's double header.

Entering Thursday's doubleheader, Balfour was sporting a 6.10 ERA over 10.1 innings largely because of his problems with the long ball. He's definitely a better pitcher than those numbers would indicate and his two-save, two scoreless inning performance Thursday helped prove that. He lowered his ERA to 5.11 and should continue to lower that number as the season moves on. Having thrown 38 pitches between the two appearances, you can expect Joel Peralta to get an opportunity to close for the Rays on Friday if the situation arises.
