McFarland secured his fourth hold in a loss to the Pirates on Sunday, firing 1.2 scoreless innings during which he allowed no hits and one walk while also recording a strikeout.

McFarland lowered his ERA to a sparkling 1.71 with Sunday's effort, his 14th consecutive scoreless outing. The 32-year-old's recent form coupled with his ability to work multiple frames on occasion makes him an increasingly valuable relief asset as the season enters its stretch run.
