cardiac save
 n.— «Kudos as well to the Jays’ Roy Halladay, who won his seventh straight decision, and the Cardinals’ Chris Carpenter, who matched Santana’s 13 strikeouts and got a win to boot after closer Jason Isringhausen picked up yet another “cardiac save” (Harold Reynolds-coined term).» —“Aces high: Santana, Carpenter both record 13 K’s” by Mark Simon EPSN.com June 14, 2006.
