Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Closes door on Mariners' 9th inning threat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kintzler picked up the save in Saturday's win over the Mariners by allowing only one single in his inning of work.

The one-run lead Kintzler had upon starting the ninth was threatened when Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz both reached base to begin the inning -- the latter on an error by Miguel Sano -- but Kyle Seager grounded into a double play, and Adam Lind flied out to end the game. This conversion marked Kinztler's 15th save in 18 chances.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Gets save despite allowing run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler gave up two hits and a run, but ultimately finished off the Royals for his 14th save Wednesday.

The Royals got the tying run as far as second base in their effort to put a sweep on Minnesota, but Kintzler worked out of it. Still, he's now given up seven runs on seven hits and three walks in his last three innings, so he's fortunate that the Twins are thin on alternate closing options.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Gets first save in more than two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler worked around a hit and recorded a strikeout in a scoreless ninth Thursday against the White Sox for his 13th save.

He'd gone more than two weeks without a save chance since nailing one down against Atlanta back on Aug. 16, but delivered on the rare opportunity. Although Kintzler's not much of a strikeout pitcher, spectacular control has made him one of the game's more effective relievers this year. He's walked just three batters in 44.1 innings.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Earns 12th save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler earned his 12th save of the season Tuesday, allowing a lone double before retiring the side to secure a 4-2 win over the Braves.

Kintzler has been solid for the Twins this season, lowering his ERA to 1.82 with the scoreless frame. He's blown just one save compared to his 12 converted since taking over the closer role in June. While he only has 24 strikeouts on the season, he's walked just three, and has allowed just four home runs.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Earns 10th save against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler picked up his 10th save with a perfect ninth inning in Monday's win over the Astros.

Since taking the closer's role June 8, Kintzler has been excellent, converting 10-of-11 save opportunities with a 13:2 K:BB in 23 innings. Kintzler owns a 92.8 mph fastball and doesn't possess the electric stuff typical of today's closers, but his combination of a heavy sinker to induce grounders and impeccable control has proven effective thus far.
