[9/7/2016] Dennis Sarfate racks up fortieth save of the year

Dennis Sarfate notched his fortieth save of the year during tonight’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at YafoOku Dome and became the first pitcher in Pacific League history to save forty or more games in back-to-back seasons (41 last year).

Hiroki Iwase recorded forty or more saves in consecutive seasons twice: in three consecutive seasons between 2005 and 2007 (46, 40, 43) and in two consecutive seasons between 2009 and 2010 (41, 42).
