Nationals' Greg Holland: Secures third save
Holland tossed a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies. He struck out one and walked two.
Sean Doolittle needed 24 pitches to close out the matinee, so Holland was called upon for the save after Juan Soto's solo homer gave the Nationals a 7-6 lead during the 10th inning. The veteran right-hander lost his command a bit -- only nine of 21 pitches thrown were strikes -- but managed to secure the save nonetheless. Holland also fired a scoreless inning during Game 1 to earn hold. The 32-year-old still has a 5.05 ERA and 1.71 WHIP for the season, but has allowed only one run, six hits and eight walks across 16 innings since joining the Nationals.
