White Sox reliever Craig Kimbrel came into Sunday’s game in the top of the 9th with the White Sox ahead by one, and gave up a run, tying the game. That usually counts as a blown save. The Sox pulled it out with a walk-off home run in the bottom of the inning. Does Kimbrel get tagged with a blown save and get credit for the win, too? He’s listed as the winning pitcher, but I can’t find any box scores that show him with a blown save. Didn’t he blow the save? What’s up with this situation?
ESPN’s box score:
Gives Kimbrel the Win (W, 4-4) and a Blown Save (B, 5)
Ah, thanks. Missed that.
