Lucas struck out two and allowed one hit and one walk over three innings to earn his first save of the season in a 9-6 win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Four of Lucas' five appearances this year have been multi-inning efforts. The stellar performance Saturday lowers his ERA to 3.48, and he has 11 strikeouts over 10.1 innings. The 28-year-old should continue to serve a long-relief role and is not expected to enter the mix for ninth-inning duties.
