Smith notched his first save of the season Friday by recording the final out in a 3-2 victory over the Tigers.
Cody Allen blew the save in the bottom of the eighth inning and then loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth after allowing three singles, forcing manager Terry Francona to bring in Smith to finish things off. The veteran righty now has a 2.53 ERA, 0.47 WHIP and 10:0 K:BB in 10 appearances (10.2 innings) since returning to Cleveland at the end of July. Sep 01 5:24 pm (EST)
