David Carpenter got a second lease on life in 2019 and saved 21 games, flying up this list, from fourth to second. Emilio Pagan broke his tie with Josh Judy to take over fifth place. If you’re curious, Tad Ratliff (Charlottesville 2015) saved 23 games in 2019, giving him 33 in his career. One more season like 2019, and he’ll move onto this list- might even make it into the top five!
