I'm channel surfing right now and happened to catch the bottom half of the 1st between the Mariners and Blue Jays. The Seattle announcer said, first time in 28 years in baseball in which all teams were playing, that not 1 save was recorded. It hasn't happened since September 15, 1978. There were 6 blown saves yesterday.

From AP:

NEW YORK -- There was no saving baseball during a wild Saturday full of blowouts and walk-off wins.

It marked the first time in nearly three decades a full day of major league games were played without a save recorded.

There were six blown saves in the 15-game schedule, including two each in Pittsburgh's 7-6 victory over Washington, and Cincinnati's 3-2 win against Colorado. The Nationals and Reds both won with ninth-inning rallies.

The last time baseball went a complete day without a save was Sept. 15, 1978, when all 26 teams were in action during a 14-game schedule -- including a doubleheader, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
