Carlos Marmol pitched two more scoreless innings Monday and has now gone seven straight innings without allowing a run.

Marmol did walk two tonight, but he's always walked plenty of batters. The problem when he imploded during the first week of the season was that he gave up six hits, two of them homers, in 1 2/3 innings. He's allowed just two hits in the seven innings since. It's quite possible he'll get a save opportunity soon.
