PHILS JOSE ALVARADO BACK ON THE SAVE TRAIN, WATCH!

By Sam Bush

José Alvarado pitched a scoreless ninth to secure a save in a 4-1 win over the Red Sox.

Alvarado did allow a one-out single and advanced the runner with a wild pitch, but he was never in any danger of blowing the lead.

He now has 12 saves on the season as the main component of a Phillies closer group.

He should remain a key piece of the bullpen throughout the season and is a good bet to lead the Phillies in saves even after the trade deadline.
