ANAHEIM -- Huston Street doesn't have a nameplate above his locker yet, but he does have his first save as an Angel.

Street, aquired on Friday to serve as closer, finished Wednesday's 3-2 win over Baltimore with a 17-pitch ninth. He issued a one-out walk to Chris Davis but struck out J.J. Hardy and Jonathan Schoop to end the game.

"You want to come in and make a good impression," Street said. "At the same time, [Baltimore] won the first two games of this series, it's a 3-2 ballgame. The way the team battled in that situation, you almost have to get it done. That's my job."

It was Street's first save in the American League since 2008 and his first at Angel Stadium since 2007. He felt a different kind of nerves entering the game on Wednesday night.

"I think that's what makes it cool," he said. "You're supposed to feel that. It's supposed to matter a little bit more. You're always proving yourself. What you did before, it doesn't matter."

Street is now 24-for-24 in save opportunities this season and has converted 50 of his last 52.

He kept the ball from his first save as an Angel; it will join 258 other balls from every one of his previous saves.
