21 others also recorded at least one save, and did so while having an ERA in the 1.00-4.00 range.  Included in this group is Rafael Dolis of the Chicago Cubs.  Dolis has taken over the closer role for Carlos Marmol and has earned 3 saves.  The 2 earned runs he has allowed over the last two weeks came in a blown save opportunity against the Brewers when he allowed a game tying two run home run in the bottom of the 9th to Corey Hart.
