D1 Huntsville's Craig Kimbrel Ties MLB Rookie Saves Record
D1 Huntsville's Craig Kimbrel converted his 40th save Tuesday, matching the major league rookie saves record set last season by Neftali Feliz of the Texas Rangers. Kimbrel has not given up a run, earned or otherwise, in more than two months, and led the majors in saves and strikeouts for relievers with an astounding 103 in 62 2/3 innings. Kimbrel began Wednesday with a remarkable 31 1/3-inning scoreless streak over 32 appearances since June 11, during which he allowed 12 hits and 10 walks with 55 strikeouts. Congrats Craig!!
