John Axford's 23rd save of the season tonight wasn't pretty, but it was successful. And by recording the final out, he put himself in pretty rare air.
Tonight's save was Axford's 20th consecutive conversion of a save opportunity. He's only the fourth pitcher in Brewer history to reach that mark:

Axford's next save will be his 24th of 2011, tying his career high set last year.
