Tom Wilhelmsen was charged with five runs in one-third of an inning Wednesday in a blown save and a loss against the Astros. (Rotoworld.com)
Advice: Not that Wilhelmsen was very good tonight, but he certainly didn't deserve that. The ninth went: infield single, single, sac bunt, intentional walk, two-run double and intentional walk, at which point Wilhelmsen was pulled. Both of those intentional walks came around to score later. Wilhelmsen has been quite shaky of late, and his strikeout rate is down this year. On the other hand, his velocity is still excellent, and we're not sure anyone else in the Seattle pen is a better bet. It's unlikely Wilhelmsen will lose his closer gig over this one, but another blown save within the next 7-10 days could do it. If so, Carter Capps, Charlie Furbush, Oliver Perez and Yoervis Medina could factor into a closer by committee.
