Familia pitched a clean ninth inning Sunday to pick up his 35th save of the season in a win over the Marlins.
He's already just eight saves shy of Armando Benitez's club record of 43 set back in 2001 with over two full months of the season to go. The Mets' rotation has shown some cracks, but the back of their bullpen remains in excellent hands with Familia.
Matz (8-6) threw six scoreless innings Sunday, scattering four hits and walking two while striking out six, to get the win against the Marlins.
It was his first victory since May 25, ending his winless streak at nine starts. Matz commanded the zone well all day. throwing 64 of 99 pitches for strikes, as he picked up his third quality start in four July outings and 11th of the season. He'll look to keep his positive momentum going Friday when the Mets host the Rockies.
Jansen struck out two in a clean inning of work to record his 29th save of the season Sunday versus the Cardinals.
Jansen had blown two his his last three save opportunities heading into Sunday, including one in Friday night's game, but he bounced back to retire the Cardinals in order. Jansen, who now sits fifth in the league in saves, has the lowest WHIP (0.69) of any pitcher in that group, and the second-lowest ERA (1.44).
