From 1957 to 2007, Saves without a batter faced – Baseball-Reference PI

Posted by Sean Forman on June 27, 2007

From 1957 to 2007, Saves without a batter faced - Baseball-Reference PI

Randy Flores back in 2002 is the last pitcher to record a save without a batter faced.  He entered and after one pitch picked off Richard Hidalgo to end the game.  Perhaps the most amazing thing about this list is that Mitch Williams did it twice in 1989.

To generate this list, I used the pitching game finder, selected Save, set BF=0 for the criteria and sorted on date.

  1. ...not to mention the 15 guys that WON a game without facing a batter--including one this year.

  2. What's the deal with Dave Baldwin, #12 on that list? He doesn't appear at all in the play-by-play section, yet he's credited with the save. Is there something obvious that I'm missing that explains this?

  3. That looks like a possible error. I'll check with Retrosheet.
