The Phoenix Stars win a close game 6-5 today against the Eagan Turtles. RP Ian Fontana gets the win for the Stars, but the main takeaway from the game is the save from veteran closer Lorenzo Pulido.
The Venezuelan struck out three batters in front of a sold out crowd at American Airlines Park. The save is Pulido's 180th of his career, passing Robert Madden's franchise save record.
After the game, with the help of a translator, Pulido reacted to the setting the record.
"It's always a great feeling to go out every day to help your team. I thank Doc [Waters] and the rest of the Stars organization for believing in me." he said.
Outside of Pulido, Shoma Misawa went 2-5 with a home run in the second inning. Jose Meza went 2-4 with a game-winning double in the eighth inning.
The Stars return to the Park tomorrow in their second game in a three game series against the Eagan Turtles.

Game date October 18, 2031:
The Mountain View Artists have reached their goal of winning 85 games.
It was a long rebuilding season playing many many many rookies and young players. There were many losing streaks due to this. but there was also times when the team showed real potential.
With a very young team, the Artists now look towards the future. Next season will be interesting. The team will still be growing but may be capable of doing some better things. The team is still humble and young but time will tell.

Feb 19 2031: Glendale Meteors move! They are now the Mountain View Artists - by wil_m on February 24th, 2017
The Glendale Meteors have moved to Mountain View, California! They are now the Mountain View Artists. The team owner said he may want an open air stadium in the future. Arizona is too hot for that so the team moved to Mountain View, California. The team may change to an open air stadium in the future and being in Mountain View, California allows for that to happen.
The name Artists was chosen to reflect the team's current rebuilding mode. The franchise hopes to build a good team in the same way an artist crafts a good painting. Maybe the team's pitchers will be doing some painting of the corners and will pitch masterpieces of their own.
