Givens allowed a run on one hit and a walk while failing to record an out Friday against the Yankees.

The reliever finished August on a rough note, but had logged four hitless appearances (4.2 innings) while striking out seven in September. Givens failed to come through Friday, though, and his ERA ticked up to 2.64 through 63 games. He still ranks among the AL's top five with 21 holds, but it's been nearly three weeks since he's last collected one.
