 Spartanburg SC | GoUpstate.com | Spartanburg Herald-Journal
In baseball statistics, the term save (abbreviated SV) is used to indicate the successful maintenance of a lead by a relief pitcher, usually the closer, until the end of the game.
A blown save (abbreviated BS or B) is charged to a pitcher who enters a game in a situation which permits him to earn a save (a 'save situation'), but who instead allows the tying run to score.
Once a pitcher blows a save, he is no longer eligible to earn a save in that game (since the lead that he was trying to "save" has disappeared), although he can earn a win if his team regains the lead.

 Free Area - Closers Tool Sneak Peak
For the year, Borowski has been excellent, notching saves in 36 of 41 chances and posting a solid 47:13 K:BB in 50 innings, but he may be wearing down or simply regressing to the mean.
He's blown just one save since June 1 while lowering his ERA from 6.03 to his current mark in that time, so he's in no danger of losing his job despite the returns of Joel Zumaya and Fernando Rodney.
Wilson got his first save on 8/20 after Brad Hennessey had saved the previous three games and needed a night off, but Hennessey didn't pitch on Friday, so perhaps the Giants are taking a look at what they have in Wilson.

 ABC News: Hoffman Honors Himself With Blown Save

Hoffman said he can't dwell on the back-to-back blown saves.
"The frustrating part is obviously the blown save, but you're in a situation where you've got to keep the game tied and give your team the chance to take the lead in the bottom half of that inning," Hoffman said.

 Dye's HR propels A's / Hudson loses out on win on Foulke's blown save
All three of Foulke's blown saves have come when Hudson was the pitcher of record, and overall, Hudson has eight no decisions this season, games in which the A's are 7-1.
Last year, he was similarly ill starred -- Hudson left with the lead in eight of his 10 no-decisions, only to see the bullpen blow it.
Said Foulke: "Obviously, when I blow a save, it bothers me a lot, but when Hudson goes out and throws eight strong innings against a great team and I can't secure it, it makes it a little harder."

 Chicago Cubs @ Bare Baseball - Baseball MLB Blog: November 2005
Van Buren shut plenty of doors with the Iowa Cubs in 2005, recording a franchise-record 25 saves and a 1.98 ERA while striking out 65 batters over 54 2/3 innings pitched.
And, if the pitcher has not given up the lead when he leaves the game, though the save opportunity may no longer exist because of added runs scored by his own team, he is not charged with a save opportunity.
Howry, 32, pitched for the Sox from 1998 until he was dealt at the 2002 trade deadline to the Boston Red Sox.

Eddie Guardado came in for the bottom of the 9th and put the Tigers down 1-2-3 for his first save of the 2003 season.
He turned a 4-1 lead over to the bullpen and watched as Alan Embree and Chad Fox combined to give up 5 runs in the bottom of the 9th, including Carl Crawford's walk-off 3-run homer.
As you probably know, the Red Sox are going with a bullpen without a closer this year, which some people are calling "closer by committe." That's not really true, in that they are really going with no closer, because they don't think the save stat should affect the way a bullpen is run.

 WasWatching.com: December 2005 Archives
When a relief pitcher enters a game, he may be said to have a save opportunity if his team currently has the lead and he would be awarded a save if he finished the game.
Nonetheless, because of the closeness in the metrics here outside of Innings Pitched and Runs Saved Above Average and the fact that the ratios of Runs Saved Above Average to Innings Pitched for Gossage and Hiller (.09 and.11, respectively) are close as well, this case will be permitted to stand in The Baseball Same Game.
Brian's "attempting to save face" reluctance to deal Carl is going to cost the Yankees - especially if they're passing over a chance to get a player like Reed in exchange for him.

Will be interesting to see if Halladay takes him under his wing to mentor him and teach him the ways of the AL batters.
Point 2 would have been salient a year ago, but Ryan was the closer for the O's in 2005, and did extremely well; a 2.43 ERA with 36 saves, 100 K's in 71 IP, with only 26 walks.
I'd say he responded to the pressure pretty well (and before you bring up the contention/non-contention issue, remember that the O's held on to first place for a significant portion of last season).

Too bad he didn’t get the win, but I’m hoping now that Izzy’s pitching 96 again that’s the last blown save I’ll see.
This would be much angrier were it not for the balk-off.
