Reed stronger in save situations
CHICAGO -- Addison Reed has made 22 appearances this season and has been scored upon in just three of those. All three of those happened to be non-save situations, including Saturday's 12th-inning loss, which was the first decision of his big league career.

But the White Sox's closer doesn't buy into the theory that he must adjust his focus during outings when a save is not possible.

"I don't feel any different when I come in with a lead, without a lead, save situation, non-save situation," Reed said. "I have the same mentality and everything, but I don't know if it's coincidence or what.

"There have been a few times I've been out in non-save situations, and things haven't gone the right way. But I don't go out any differently."

Reed has allowed 10 runs over 2 2/3 innings during the three games where the opposition has scored. He has given up 12 hits over the remaining 16 innings, fanning 17.

"Everything feels good," Reed said. "There are a couple of pitches I would like to take back, but it happens."
