Wade Davis, Cubs

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NL CENTRAL -

Ac­quired from the Kansas City Roy­als in an off­sea­son trade, the right-han­der broke a club record with his 27th con­sec­u­tive save Aug 29 when he pitched a score­less ninth in­ning against the Pitts­burgh Pirates. Davis then made it 28-for-28 on Sept. 1 against the At­lanta Braves while low­er­ing his ERA to 2.12. The pre­vi­ous record was set by Ryan Demp­ster in 2005-06.
