Grant Balfour picked up his seventh save of the season Wednesday pitching a scoreless ninth with one strikeout of the Rays 2-0 win over the Mariners.

Balfour is now 7-for-8 in save save chances since joining the Rays this off-season and is now sitting on a 4.70 ERA and 1.43 WHIP through his first 15.1 innings of work. Although he hasn't pitched all that well in the early going, there has been no indication that the Rays would pull the plug quickly if his struggles were to carry over into the heat of the season.
