Wes Littleton, bullpen hero
The Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 30-3 in the first game of a doubleheader last night. It was a great game for many Texas players to pad those stats - especially Wes Littleton, the relief pitcher who closed out the last 3 innings for the save. Yes, he saved a 27 run lead. In fairness it was merely an 11 run lead when he came in, so it was a lot closer than you'd think.
Nothing against Littleton at all, who pitched 3 scoreless innings and allowed only 3 baserunners. He was helped, however, by the fact that the Oriole hitters had trouble seeing the ball through their tears of shame.
Strike out the side with the bases loaded in a tie game? You get some high-fives. 3 innings in a blowout? Save! Ridiculous.
