Description: Nationals RP Sean Burnett pitched 1 2/3 innings to get his third save of the year, though he did allow a run.
Insight: Burnett also did not strike out anyone. Owners that have Drew Storen should not panic and drop him yet, as Storen should get save opportunities.

Description: Sean Burnett pitched a scoreless 11th inning to earn his second save of the season last night.
Insight: He hasn't allowed a run so far this year and hasn't given the Nationals a reason to consider anyone else for saves. He should be used in all leagues right now.

Insight: Burnett recorded the final five outs while striking out two. He seems to be the favorite to get the save opportunities with Matt Capps now on the Twins. (SportsBuff.com)
