"Forty would be nice, but I mean, it would be nice to get 50 because that means we are winning those ballgames," said Reed, who was a candidate for American League Player of the Week with four saves. "The more I get, the better it is because we are winning. I'm going to try to get as many as possible.
"That's something that once the season is over with and I look back at it, I think it will be even cooler. But right now, if I have two more save chances, I'll try to get those. If I have 10 more, I'll try to get those."
Reed hit a snag in the ninth inning of Monday night's 10-8 loss to the Astros, allowing back-to-back homers to Matt Dominguez and Chris Carter.
