RHP Greg Holland overcame a shaky beginning to the 12th inning to earn his 45th save of the season, matching the club single-season record. Dan Quisenberry saved 45 games in 1983, and Jeff Montgomery tied the mark in 1993. Holland walked the first two batters he faced Monday night, but he eventually finished off the game with a controversial strikeout that left Mariners LF Michael Saunders cursing at the plate umpire. Of the record-tying save, Holland said: "Maybe it'll sink in later, when I'm sitting at home in the offseason."
