, RP, SD
Padres closer Huston Street
was touched for his first run of the season Friday, but still earned the save in a 2-1 win over the Giants.
Street surrendered a solo home run to Brandon Belt, making the insurance run the Padres picked up in the eighth inning even more important. He retired the side relatively easily from that point on, striking out three batters and walking one for his sixth save.
Street is 6 for 6 on save opportunities this season with nine strikeouts and two walks in seven innings of work.
Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez
wasn't at his sharpest, but still picked up his fifth save of the season in a 5-3 win Friday over the Pirates.

Rodriguez has yet to allow a run this season while recording five saves in as many opportunities. He is off to a great start, with 13 strikeouts and just two walks through his first eight innings of work.

, RP, WAS
Nationals closer Rafael Soriano
had a bit of cushion, and picked up his fourth save of the season pretty easily in a 3-1 win over the Cardinals.
Soriano walked one hitter to put the tying run at the plate with one out, but ended any possible threat by inducing a game-ending double play from the next batter. He is now perfect in four save opportunities, and has yet to allow a run in six innings this season.

, RP, SD
Padres starting pitcher Tyson Ross
evened his record in a 2-1 win over the Giants Friday, as he twirled another gem for the win.

After allowing a leadoff double to open the game, Ross was rarely in trouble in the start, allowing just the one extra-base hit. He struck out nine batters while throwing 66 of 100 pitches for strikes.
Ross wasn't sharp in his first two starts of the season, both losses, but has found his way over his last two. He has struck out 16 with just two walks over his last 15 innings of work, and is now 2-2 with a 2.13 ERA heading into his next start, Wednesday against the Brewers.

Shawn Camp gets the call from Triple-A
, RP, PHI
The Phillies recalled reliever Shawn Camp
from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday, after the bullpen was thinned out in a 12-1 loss to the Rockies. Camp was one of the final cuts in the spring.
Camp was a useful reliever as recently as two season ago, but posted an ugly 7.05 ERA in 26 appearances for the Cubs a year ago. Camp has a 3.00 ERA in six innings for Lehigh Valley this season.
