Astros' Ken Giles: Pours in strikes for save No. 18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out two in a perfect ninth inning against the A's on Wednesday, netting his 18th save.

He threw 11 of his 12 pitches for strikes, bouncing back effectively after struggling with his control in his most recent appearance Saturday and then receiving an extended rest. Giles' ERA is still inflated at 3.56, so he hasn't quite given fantasy owners all the help they were hoping for, but he's got a strong grip on the ninth-inning role for Houston.

Astros' Ken Giles: Picks up save against Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles picked up his 17th save with a clean ninth inning in Monday's win over the Athletics.

After a rough stretch to open the month, Giles has thrown four straight scoreless innings. Despite a mediocre 3.62 ERA, Giles is a sharp 17-for-19 on save conversions, far better than his 15-for-20 mark from last season.

Astros' Ken Giles: Suffers loss against Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles (1-2) gave up a two-run homer to Mike Moustakas in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday, letting the Royals walk off with a 9-7 win. He gave up three hits and struck out one in an inning of work.

First he blew the save after coming on in the eighth and allowing the game-tying hit, then he blew the game in the ninth. That's now three straight outings in which Giles has surrendered at least one run, a stretch that's inflated his ERA to 4.24. Still, considering that Giles owns a sparkling 29:8 K:BB over 23.1 innings this year and has converted 15 saves successfully, there's not much cause for concern unless this skid persists.

Astros' Ken Giles: Gives up run but earns save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles pitched one inning, allowing one run on one hit with a walk and two strikeouts to pick up the save in Saturday's 6-5 win over Pittsburgh.

Giles allowed an RBI single to Adrian Beltre, but struck out Rougned Odor to preserve the one-run victory. Giles is now 15-for-16 in saves this year, ranking second in the American League. While his 3.63 ERA isn't the prettiest, Giles has an 11.0 K/9 and is firmly entrenched as the closer on the team with the best record in baseball.

Astros' Ken Giles: Mops up Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles allowed a home run and struck out one over one inning in a non-save situation in Friday's 7-1 win over the Rangers.

Giles hadn't pitched since the previous Friday so his arm needed the work. The home run was the first he's allowed this season, and the sixth run he's allowed during non-save opportunities. In non-save situations, Giles' ERA is 7.61 compared to 1.29 when a save is on the line.
