500th Save for Watts As Rebels Hold Off Sand Gnats

Bob Watts has joined elite company. The Boston Rebels reliever earned his 500th save in a 6-5 victory over the Savannah Sand Gnats at Ballpark of Savannah. The newest member of the 500 club told reporters after the game, "I get the ball and I try to win the game. When I get a save, my team wins and really that's all that matters. I'm happy to reach the milestone but it's just that. The more important part is that I've helped my club win." While picking up the save, Watts allowed no hits and no runs in 1 innings of work.

Despite the dejection of their team having lost the game, even a number of Sand Gnats fans were seen honoring Watts as they joined in the standing ovation as he recorded the final out on his historic save. "That was pretty special," he said. "Something I won't soon forget."

So far in his career Watts has appeared in 1046 games and saved 500 games. His lifetime record is 78-78 with 1334 strikeouts and 374 walks in 1185.2 innings and his ERA stands at 2.37.
