The Boston Red Sox fell in the first game of their series with the Atlanta Braves, but managed to salvage the finale and pull off a series split.
But the story of the game was the man who ended it.
Red Sox closer Kenley Jansen entered the game in the bottom of the ninth inning to close out his former team.
The veteran right-hander managed to record the final three outs and secure a save.
But it wasn’t just any save.
Jansen finally achieved an elite milestone, recording his 400th career save.
On Twitter, the Red Sox celebrated Jansen’s milestone by posting a congratulatory message for their veteran closer.
Closed in on history!
