Oh gave up two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in the ninth inning Friday to blow his second save of the season in a 6-5 loss to the Giants. He'd converted 10 straight save chances coming into this one, but Oh found himself catching too much of the strike zone for a change, as his walk was intentional and he threw 17 of 24 pitches for strikes. His 1.86 ERA in 9.2 May innings looks good until you realize it's aided by three unearned runs, and his 1.66 WHIP and 6:7 K:BB during the month are better reflections of his struggles.
Oh fired two scoreless innings in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox, giving up a hit and issuing a walk while recording two strikeouts. The closer preserved a 4-4 tie in what was his first multi-inning outing since May 1. Oh has pitched to some contact this season but has limited the damage after some early stumbles, with Wednesday's effort marking his sixth straight scoreless appearance. He also hasn't surrendered an earned run since April 17 against the Pirates, lowering his ERA from 9.53 to 2.61 over that span.
Oh worked around a hit over a scoreless ninth inning in a 5-3 win over the Cubs on Saturday. The 34-year-old righty has converted his last 10 save opportunities and hasn't allowed an earned run since April 17. Oh looks to be one of the more reliable fantasy closers and should have an abundance of save opportunities throughout the rest of the season.
Oh pitched a scoreless ninth inning with a single hit allowed and two strikeouts to collect his ninth save of the season during Wednesday's win over Miami. The St. Louis closer has now gone 11 appearances and 12 innings without allowing an earned run, and he's collected eight saves and 11 strikeouts during that stretch. The closer landscape is as volatile as ever, so with Oh's early-season struggles in the rearview mirror, he's a set-and-forget fantasy asset at this point.
Oh held the Marlins off the bases in the ninth inning Tuesday, collecting his eighth save. Aside from his May 1 hiccup against Milwaukee, Oh has been impressive in righting the ship after a rough start to the season. He's now made 10 consecutive appearances without allowing an earned run, tightening his grip on the Cardinals' closing job.
