Eric Bradley, Fourth Save - 2769

Eric Bradley came in and did what he needed to do. He also picked up the save.

In this June 1990 contest, Bradley's Myrtle Beach Blue Jays were up 4-1 and Bradley came on to finish off the Sumter Braves. He did so by giving up one hit and no runs. It was his fourth save on the year, according to The Sumter Item.

Bradley went on to pick up four more saves for the single-A Blue Jays that year, after getting seven saves in rookie ball the year before.

For Bradley, though, those eight total saves at Myrtle Beach proved to be his last as a professional, his career ending with season's end.

Bradley's career began in 1988, taken by the Blue Jays in the 40th round of the draft, out of Laney College in Oakland, Ca.

With the Blue Jays, Bradley started at rookie Medicine Hat. He got into 16 games in 1988, starting one. he went 1-3, with a 6.14 ERA and no saves.

For 1989, Bradley got 21 outings back at Medicine Hat, picking up seven saves and a 2.43 ERA. He also got six outings at single-A Myrtle Beach, posting a 2.45 ERA there.

Bradley returned to Myrtle Beach for 1990. But it would be his final season as a pro. He got into 46 games in relief, with a 3.31 ERA and those eight saves, ending his career.
