John Axford rebounded nicely from Friday's disaster, retiring all three hitters he faced, including a pair of strikeouts, to earn his 21st save of the season.

Axford still owns a frightening 5.26 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season, so there's no guarantee that he'll settle back into the job over the remainder of the season. He'll likely be kept on a short leash with Kameron Loe and Jim Henderson still lurking in case of a potential blow-up.
