I sent an email.  Pretty obvious he got the hold, meets all MLB and Yahoo Scoring requirements.  Just a matter of time before they fix it.

Unfortunately, MLB is not crediting Downs with a Hold because he did not qualify.

Here is why: 

A relief pitcher is credited with a hold any time he enters a game in a save situation. Since Downs did not enter the game in Save situation because there was already one out in the inning. In order to qualify for a Save, the relief pitcher must enter the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning.   Downs did not have an option to pitch a full inning because there was already one out in the inning.    This was an odd play, but please note that Yahoo! does not make calls on official scoring plays. We get our data from official MLB stats. Unless the MLB changes the stats for Downs, we will not be crediting Downs with a Hold.

mlb.com shows it as a hold:

BUT if he qualifies for a hold why didn't Friere get a save?

Hi Thomas,

It does look like they updated Downs to include a Hold for 9/23. Unfortunately, this was done after scoring was finalized for the week, and matchup results were locked. It cannot be updated at this point.

Regarding Friere - He didn't qualify for the save. You can see the answer to this question posted here:

Save?

I hope this helps!
