David Aardsma's 30th save of the season did more than put away Seattle's 66th win of the year, it pushed him into an exclusive group of Mariners relievers.
He becomes just the sixth Mariner to save at least 30 games in a season.
Here's the list of 30-save seasons:
* Kazuhiro Sasaki (2001) 45 saves
* J.J. Putz (2007) 40 saves
* Kazuhiro Sasaki (2000) 37 saves
* Kazuhiro Sasaki (2002) 37 saves
* Eddie Guardado (2005) 36 saves
* J.J. Putz (2006) 36 saves
* Jose Mesa (1999) 33 saves
* Mike Schooler (1989) 33 saves
* Mike Schooler (1990) 30 saves
* David Aardsma (2009) 30 saves
Aardsma got his 30th in the teams 127 game, meaning he has 35 more games in which to add to his total.
"It's just a number," Aardsma said of his 30th save. "I want to be proud at the end of the year."
