Britton closing in on Gagne, sort of

Zach Britton closed out his 55th consecutive save today, breaking an American League record held previously by Tom “Flash” Gordon.

Britton has battled through arm troubles – several bouts to be exact – and hasn’t blown a save since September of 2015.

He sets his sights next on a record held by Eric Gagne which is 84. If all holds up for Britton, you would expect he be knocking at the door this time next year; possibly even in a different uniform.
