Jonathan Papelbon gave up a hit but struck out two Mariners and earned his 30th save of the season for the Phillies on Wednesday. 

Papelbon continues his resurgent season. The outing lowered his ERA to 1.58, the second-lowest of his career -- he posted a 0.92 ERA in 2006, amazingly. He's no longer a dominant strikeout artist, and his peripherals suggest his skills aren't any different than they have been the last two seasons. This late in the game we can't anticipate a series of blow-ups, but don't be surprised if his ERA is back to the 2.50-3.00 range in 2015.
