Burton threw a 1-2-3 ninth inning with two strikeouts to pick up his first save of the season Sunday against the White Sox.



Impact
Burton was called upon to preserve a 6-5 lead in the ninth inning, as regular closer Glen Perkins had thrown 64 pitches in the last three days. The 33-year-old Burton hasn't been scored upon in five straight appearances, but his early-season struggles have left him with a 5.52 ERA on the year. There's no reason to rush and pick him up, as Perkins will return to the closer's role once he's rested.
