Francisco Rodriguez earned his 50th save Sunday, helping the Los Angeles Angels seal a 5-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins and reaffirm his consistent 2008 badassery.
K-Rod got three outs in the ninth and caught a surly Denard Span looking to end the game, moving him within seven saves of Bobby Thigpen’s 1990 single-season record with the Chicago White Sox.
"I would love to get that record. I’m not going to lie to you," he said.Petty sure that won't be a problem, what with closing for the best team in baseball, whose magic number is 16 after creating a 17-game lead over the second-place Texas Rangers in the AL West.
