Steve Cishek RP MIA Sep 01 '12
Steve Cishek was handed his first blown save Saturday since inheriting the Marlins' ninth-inning role, allowing four runs on four hits in 2/3 of an inning.
Cishek took over with a 3-1 lead, then allowed consecutive singles to start the ninth inning. After striking out Ike Davis, Lucas Duda singled to cut the lead to 3-2. Mike Baxter fouled out to the shortstop for the second out, but Andres Torres drew a walk, then Kelly Shoppach delivered the crushing blow with a three-run single to center. With as well as he's pitched, Cishek should keep his gig. But he'll certainly be put on notice.
