• The first save of the post-Francisco Rodriguez era for the New York Mets went to right-hander Jason Isringhausen, who needed only 11 pitches to retire Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and David Freese Tuesday. This doesn't mean Isringhausen will close the final 10 weeks, but unless the Mets deal him he's the wiser own than the more popular (in ESPN leagues) Bobby Parnell, who pitched the eighth inning.
