Karinchak fired a perfect ninth inning en route to earn the save in the win over the Astros on Wednesday.
Karinchak retired the side in the ninth inning, getting all three batters to pop up in the infield. The 25-year-old recorded his 11th save, tying teammate Emmanuel Clase for most on the team. Cleveland's closing situation has been somewhat inconsistent and the save opportunities usually go to Clase or Karinchak depending on the matchup. Karinchak hasn't struck anyone out over his last three appearances, which is uncharacteristic considering his 14.5 K/9. The 25-year-old has 2.55 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP across 42.1 innings.
