Diaz allowed one hit and struck out one in the ninth inning to earn the save in a 4-2 victory over the Marlins on Saturday.

The 25-year-old needs a lot more of these kinds of outings to bring his numbers back down to normal after he yielded five runs June 27 and four runs in a loss a week later. Diaz is 1-6 and 20-for-24 in save opportunities. He also has a 5.35 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 57 strikeouts in 35.1 innings this season.
