Closer Tommy Hunter has converted six of seven save opportunities so far, which is certainly an adequate success rate for a guy who has never held down that role full-time, but the jury is still out on how dependable he can be in one-run situations. Despite his overpowering stuff, he has a knack for drama, which was very much on display Wednesday night when he loaded the bases with one out before getting a double-play ball to protect the Orioles' 10-8 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. He has recorded one save and one blown save in two one-run save situations and allowed a run in three of his four two-run save situations. It isn't often you see a guy that size who can walk a tightrope that well.
